Until the heart is surrendered unconditionally to God, the human agent is not abiding in the True Vine, and cannot flourish in the Vine, and bear rich clusters of fruit. God will not make the slightest compromise with sin. If He could have done this, Christ need not have come to our world to suffer and die. No conversion is genuine which does not change both the character and the conduct of those who accept the truth. The truth works by love, and purifieth the soul.
|We might be hanging on the True Vine, but as long as we are not attached to it, then we will be spiritually dead, as the branch in this picture.|
The reason why many find the Christian life so deplorably hard, why they are so fickle, so variable, is, they try to attach themselves to Christ without detaching themselves from their cherished idols.
|We should dare to be different, even if it means standing out as the only blooming yellow flower. A life with Christ is always worth it.|
Our faith increases by exercise. When we pray, we should live out our prayers as an act of FAITH.
