On the night Jesus was betrayed, he instructed his disciples: “Abide in me, and I in you.” He went on to give an analogy of how a grapevine will only produce grapes if the branches remain firmly connected to the vine. He then said: “If you abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.” (John 15:7-8)
The challenge for every follower of Jesus is this: How do you actually seek the kingdom of God first and foremost in your life? In order to set your mind on where Christ is reigning, you must learn how to think about his perspectives and his priorities. Your heavenly Father is renewing your thinking so that it will better align with his Son’s. Keeping the Bible’s teachings in your heart and mind is how you will be able to obey him and thus remain (menó) in Christ.

Like a glass of sweet tea on a hot summer day, this book hits the spot. Bill Simpson’s teaching is excellent. He doesn’t gloss over difficult to understand passages, but patiently explains the meaning of words and phrases (Greek/Hebrew) to give the reader great insight into what Paul was really saying. The specific calls to action after each reading brings each days reading right to where you are. - Wanda Curtis
