Tethered

“Wandering one: As it was Jesus who drew you when He said, ‘Come,’ so it is Jesus who keeps you when He says, ‘Abide’. The grace to come and the grace to abide are alike from Him alone…the chord of love that drew you near…holds you fast and binds you to Himself.” –Andrew Murray, in Abiding in Christ

What a comfort and joy to know that I do not have to hold on for dear life!  The True Vine has already tethered Himself to me.
