A large, strong vine bears a weak branch and holds it more than the branch holds the vine. Ask the Father by the Holy Spirit to reveal to you what a glorious, loving, mighty Christ this is, in whom you have your place and your life; it is faith in what Christ is, more than anything else, that will keep you abiding in Him. A soul filled with large thoughts of the Vine will be a strong branch and will abide confidently in Him.

So we will feel its claims and be compelled to acknowledge that there can be no true allegiance to our King without simply and heartily accepting this important command. Come, fellow believers, and let us day by day place ourselves at His feet, and meditate on this word of His with an eye fixed on Him alone. ’’ The soul that hears Jesus himself speak the word receives with the word the power to accept and to hold the blessing He offers.
