Trusting

Trusting

What is it that keeps us from trusting Him perfectly? How am I to get that trust?

My answer is: By the death of self.

The great hindrance to trust is self-effort.

Wood

Wood

Wood speaks of man and his nature.

It stands in contrast to Gold, which represents God and His Nature.

Live Exclusively

Live Exclusively

The believer, the branch of Christ the Heavenly Vine,

Is to Live Exclusively so Christ may Bear Fruit through him.

A True Christian is to be Devoted to the Work of Bearing Fruit to the Glory of God.

Bear Fruit

Bear Fruit

A branch is a growth of the Vine, produced to Bear Fruit.

It has only one purpose: that through it the Vine may Bear and Ripen its Fruit.

As the Vine lives to Produce the Sap that makes the Grape, so the branch Receives that Sap and Bears the Grape.

Its Work is to Serve the Vine so that, through the branch, the Vine may do its Work.

Christ

Christ

Who is a Minister of the Word?

He is one who translates Christ into the Bible; that is, he tells people of the Christ he knows in the Words of the Bible so that in those who receive the Bible the Holy Spirit will translate it back into Christ.

Necessary

Necessary

The eye cannot say to the hand, I have no need of you: or again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

Nay, much rather, those members of the Body which seem to be more feeble are necessary.

Yield

Yield

In proportion

As we yield ourselves a Truly Passive Instrument in the Hand of God,

Will we be Wielded of God as the Active Instrument of His Almighty Power.
