Imagine choosing to live each day of your life in utter poverty, with no money and no contact with friends and relatives—and all the while, loved ones and an enormous inheritance with your name on it are available to you.
As amazing as that sounds, many Christians find themselves in precisely that situation—living in an unnecessary state of self-imposed spiritual poverty. Christ passed along a rich legacy of promises to believers, and used the metaphor of a grape vine and its branches to illustrate His tender, sustaining, capacious spiritual provision. Yet often we struggle through life’s challenges and painful trials as if the spiritual resources flowing to us from Christ don’t even exist.
Are you failing to tap into the life-sustaining riches Christ offers and provides? Worse yet, could you be among those Christ warned about—those who think they’re under His care when they really aren’t?
John MacArthur’s comforting and convicting study Abiding in Christ provides rich, vivid insight into Jesus’ last words to His disciples before Calvary—vital truth for you today. Make sure you understand both the cost and the benefits of being connected to Christ.
