What is our source of life? Our only source of life is Christ Himself—we find this as we abide in Him. But what are the things that hinder us from abiding in Christ? One thing that can hinder us from abiding in Christ and producing fruit for His Kingdom is competition from other things, even good things, in our lives. In this episode, we take a look at the things that God wants to prune away in our lives that keep us from abiding in Him.
God’s goal in pruning us is not to make us better people. His goal is to replace us with His life. Is this a difficult or painful process? It can be. But it is filled with beauty and hope. When we allow God to take things out of our lives, He replaces those things with Someone, and His name is Jesus.
In summary, to truly abide in Christ, we must get alone with God and embrace the pruning process. In this episode, listen to discover the keys to removing competition from abiding in Christ.
