Show Notes for Grains from Gutteridge Podcast Episode #14: The Vine and the Branches
Of this message, Pastor Gutteridge wrote:
God is the Husbandman, the great Vine-Dresser. He intends that His children should be fruitful with ever-increasing fruitfulness, so He purges them, that they may bring forth more fruit.
But they must abide in the Vine as living branches in the Vine; and the Vine is His own well-beloved Son. This abiding means complete obedience to the Son’s commandments, and in their loving obedience, God’s children bring forth much fruit.

And the flames leaped up, but the blinding smoke
Could not the soul of Hugh Latimer choke;
For, said he, “Brother Ridley, be of good cheer,
A candle in England is lighted here,
Which by the grace of God shall never go out!”
And that speech in whispers was echoed about—
Latimer’s Light shall never go out,
However the winds may blow it about.
Latimer’s Light can come to stay
Till the trump of a coming judging day.
