Do you want to grow spiritually? If you are reading this, I’m confident your answer is “of course!”
Jesus tells us in John 15 that abiding in Him is foundational to spiritual growth and successfully living the Christian life:
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
Abide in Christ
If you are like me, the instruction to abide in Christ can seem vague and hard to get your mind around. But I don’t think Jesus intended for it to be a difficult concept.
As I have studied the scriptures, I’ve come to believe Jesus’s instruction to abide in Him was so foundational to the early Christians that it even became Paul’s chief defining phrase. In all, he used the phrase “in Christ” 73 times in his writings!
We can get so hung up on what it means to “abide” that we forget the focus is the remainder of the phrase, “in Me.” The WHERE (in Christ) is just as important as the WHAT (abide).
If we want to get serious about intimately abiding in Christ and bearing fruit, we need to understand what, where, and how this thing works!
The ABIDE mini course is a brand new mentoring resource that takes a fresh look at the instruction to abide in Christ. The lessons are streamlined into bite sized, digestible pieces that pack a punch. Plus they are extremely practical so that over the course of 5 days you’ll receive hands on tools for abiding and bearing godly fruit.
The ABIDE 5 day mini course will help you
> understand the key to “abiding in Christ” (there is one!)
> know how to practically abide
> deepen your intimacy with Jesus
> bear fruit and life transformation from abiding in Christ
> employ tools for letting the word of Christ richly dwell in the heart and mind (see Colossians 3:16).
Just a word of caution: This course is for those who are serious about being a doer of the word and not a hearer only. It is not for shoppers, hoppers, or those with a consumer mentality. If you are looking for “5 quick ways to be more spiritual,” this course is not for you. I’ll be frank: If that is you, it’ll be a waste of your time to sign up.
However, if the words “desperate hungry for God” describe you, this is for you! This course is soul food for those who genuinely want to go deeper in their relationship with Christ and are willing to change habits in order to do so.
This is some of the best mentoring material I’ve written and I’m happy to offer this course FREE to subscribers. To sign up for the ABIDE 5 day mini course, simply subscribe to Arabah Joy below.
