Christ gave His disciples complete instructions for living the abundant life. And He speaks to us today through His Word, saying: ‘This life can be yours as well!’
This is an outstanding little book. A simple exposition of John 15, I've never read anything better on the subject.
Warren Wiersbe does an excellent job on bringing out the logic and flow of Jesus' teaching in John 15. He writes clearly and in a straightforward manner with lots of insight into the meaning and application of the passage. I especially liked his explanation of what it means to 'abide' in Jesus - that as Christians have been united to Christ, as the branch is united to the vine, then this living union forms the basis of our communion with Jesus (our 'abiding' in him), our moment-by-moment fellowship with our Lord that is evidenced in our lives in various ways as we live for him. Very helpful and challenging stuff! Well worth recommending to others if they're looking for a good read.
This book is really good. Encourages Christians to abide in Christ in every aspect of our lives. Very encouraging yet challenging book. Also there is a song in YouTube called abide by housefires which I recommend listening to it.
This is a short exposition (78 pages) of Jesus' vine discourse in John 15. Five short chapters bring out five "secrets" of godly living. We are to bear fruit, by obeying Jesus in love and knowledge. It is a most encouraging book.
With great clarity and precision, Wiersbe unpacks John 15 revealing the “secret” of living for Christ. In John 15, we are told that we are the branches and God is the vine dresser. Wiersbe made that pivotal episode in the ministry of Jesus Christ unforgettable, endearing and comforting as he deals with the issue of fruit bearing for the believers. Abide is not a stiff or cold lesson rather a vivid and lively excursion to John’s gospel that will excite believers to get their hands dirty for God. Every chapter drips with pastoral care only Wiersbe can deliver. Abide is simple, practical and thoroughly biblical, something you’ll expect to Warren W. Weirsbe. The secret is out! Live for Christ by following and knowing these secrets. This book will push you back to the Scriptures and look at God’s best for His elect. By far one of my best reads from 10ofThose and I’m looking forward for more . Highly recommended!
