Book Review: "The True Vine" by Andrew Murray
The True Vine (1897) by Andrew Murray This devotional style book based on John 15 is excellent and definitely worth the read. Andrew Murray fully fleshes out the idea of abiding in Christ and correctly balances the truths of "ye can do nothing" with "ye are friends if ye obey my commands". We must seek to obey Christ in everything that we do, bearing fruit for the glory of the Father, by recognizing that we can do nothing apart from him and taking time daily to orient ourselves towards him in our mind and heart and then living our day wholly dependent upon him. Jesus Christ, please accomplish this in my life.
