Continuation on John 15:4. “The remarks that have been made (in previous blogs) are intended as general hints, but the only teacher of the true life of faith is Christ. Go to Him and ask Him to direct you. Christ is willing to make you just as meek, just as patient, and just as lovely as He is. If you desire it earnestly, if you desire it more than everything else, if you are willing to give up all beside for it, He will explain to you practically what is meant by “abiding in Him” and by His coming to make His abode with you.
Then your Christian race will be full of love and joy; more like the free flight of a bird than the struggle of a captive. You will run with patience the race that is set before you, and know by blessed experience that “the joy of the Lord is your strength” (Hebrews 12:1; Nehemiah. 8:10).”
