I have felt drawn to try to write
what young Christians might easily apprehend, as a help to them
to take up that position in which the Christian life must be a
success. It is as if there is not one of the principal temptations
and failures of the Christian life that is not met here. The nearness,
the all-sufficiency, the faithfulness of the Lord Jesus, the naturalness,
the fruitfulness of a life of faith, are so revealed, that it
is as if one could with confidence say, Let the parable enter
into the heart, and all will be right.
May the blessed Lord give the blessing.
May He teach us to study the mystery of the Vine in the spirit
of worship, waiting for God's own teaching.
