Previously, we began a discussion on aggressively abiding in Christ. According to Jesus, abiding isn’t an addition to the Christian life, it is the essence of it!
Yet there is a promise amidst the abiding life that is of pruning. Though we tend to shy away from difficulty, trials, hardships, pain, and problems—the reality is, God want to use those as opportunities to prune and sanctify your life. If we are every going to be come more Christ-like, it demands that God removes anything that does not look like Jesus.
In this episode, we continue our conversation on abiding in Christ as we discuss the promise and provision of God’s pruning in our lives.
Rather than dread the difficulties, we should rejoice and celebrate the opportunity they bring to bear more fruit of the vine!
