Last week I wrote a post on “abiding”.
After writing that post, I discovered a book called “Abide in Christ” by Andrew Murray.
After looking at the table of contents and then reading the preface of the book, I had an idea.
You see, “Abide in Christ” is written for reading one chapter a day over the course of a month. The hope is that the reader will go slowly and practice abiding, not just read another book about it. So, after deciding to go through “Abide in Christ” myself, I had the great idea of asking if anyone wants to read through it together. My thought is that we can start May 1st, and each day I will post a super brief post with something from that day’s reading that stood out to me. Then, those reading along can share in the comments something that stood out to them. We can spend all month encouraging one another to abide in the vine.
Obviously, if you want to participate you will need a copy of the book. You can get the book from amazon here. We actually purchased ours on our kindle and were able to get an Andrew Murray bundle of 16 books for $0.99.
If you want to let me know that you are joining in, then leave a comment. However, you can join in even if you never comment. Commenting really isn’t the point, but it is lots of fun! 🙂
I’m excited about the new insights into and experiences of the Lord May is going to bring. Let the abiding begin! (or continue and deepen if you are super spiritual ;-P)
