Are you spiritually withered? Do you find yourself lacking the fruit promised to believers by the Apostle Paul? Well, how's your connection to the Vine? In his discussions with his disciples, Christ used the picture of a plant to illustrate the relationship between Himself, the life-giver, and his followers, the life-receivers. Andrew Murray examines this metaphor, taking the reader beyond a mere surface application of this truth to realize the absolute necessity of 'abiding in the vine.' 'Apart from me, you can do nothing.' We can't try to be spiritual. We can't even try to be good. All of our strengths and all of our blessings come as gifts from our heavenly Father. Examine the fifteenth chapter of John with this skilled Bible scholar.

"No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me."
Work for Him. Rest in Him.
The Vine is the sole provider for the branch. The branch needs only to obey. The care and nutrients the branch receives from the Vine are more than enough to bear all the fruit it can handle.
This simple work is written in such a way as to make God's Word clear to anyone who would listen. Andrew Murray was able to reach the young and underprivileged of his day with his straightforward preaching and writing. And as he lived, fully abiding in the Lord, so these words of Christ are made clear for another century.
ANDREW MURRAY (1828-1917) was a church leader, evangelist, and missionary statesman. His other books include The School of Obedience, Waiting on God, Absolute Surrender, and The Prayer Life.
