A Personal Word From Bob Nix
In John 18:1-2 the scripture says "When Jesus had spoken these words, He went over the Brook of Kidron, where there was a garden, which He and His disciples entered...for Jesus often met there with His disicples."
It is noteworthy that for Jesus there was a garden, an outward place of retreat where He could instruct His diciples concerning the inward place of abiding in Him. Does it seem to you as it does to me that today within the Christain community of faith we have lost or forgotten what it truly means to live a life of "abiding" in Christ?
There is a longing in the heart of many of God's people to recapture "the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ" spoken of in I Corinthians 11:3. The fruitfulness of everything else we touch in our spiritual journey is determined by the depth and quality of our inward life of abiding and resting in fellowship and communion with the Father, through His Son, Jesus Christ.
We extend to you a personal invitation to come to an outward place, The Abiding Place, where you might re-discover and deepen the joy of your salvation and find that inward place of "abiding" in Him. We look forward to our time with you.
In His Embrace,
