A Timeless Guide to the Art of Abiding
Many a faithful Christian has pondered over Jesus' command in John 15: "abide in me." Compelled by the invitation but baffled by how to practically achieve it, they fail to grasp the power and promise within the Savior's most important command.
South African pastor, teacher, and writer, Andrew Murray, (1828-1917) believed that abiding was the highest call for every Christian; the key to pressing beyond the mere threshold of salvation into the fullness of all that Jesus's death & resurrection secured.
Arguably the finest of Murray's extensive works, Abide in Christ is a 31-day devotional suffused with glory; a direct invitation to learn and walk in the power of abiding.

"Therefore, my brother, who would learn to abide in Jesus, take time each day, ere you read, and while you read, and after you read, to put yourself into living contact with the living Jesus, to yield yourself distinctly and consciously to His blessed influence; so will you give Him the opportunity of taking hold of you, of drawing you up and keeping you safe in His almighty life."
