In John 15, Jesus spoke to his disciples regarding the bond between them by likening it to that of a vine and its branches. While we may be familiar with the verses, I wonder if we have considered the intensity of this symbolic representation. Adam and I dig into it in this audio.
there is no advice in this world – even if it comes from a Bible verse or a preacher’s sermon – that can produce God’s work within you. Oh, it might make you appear more spiritually productive, but the working of God doesn’t come from the practical side of the grave … but from the living side that has risen past it. When I tell you that Christ is your life, I’m telling you about the one and only present-tense reality that causes you to live as one who is truly alive in this world. source
