THE SECRET OF ABIDING
“I am the vine; you are the branches.
If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit . . .”
~ John 15:5
“Here in the last of the Parable secrets that we are studying, this lesson is taught us in a wonderful picture. It is the likeness of the vine whose current of sap flows through every branch that is knit into its stem, just as we read that ‘He that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit’ . . . as the sap fills all the little channels of the branch, making it alive with the life of the stem to its furthest tendrils, so is God’s purpose for our partaking of the Divine nature by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.”
