A branch is connected to the vine, and a vine to the branch. This is what theologians frequently describe as “union with Christ.” Notice that this connection, this union, is mutual. Ludwig Andreas von Feuerbach (J – Septem ) was a German philosopher and anthropologist best known for his book The Essence of Christianity, which provided a critique of Christianity which strongly influenced generations of later /5(68).

Abiding in Christ is not a feeling or a belief, but something we do. It means to “remain” or “stay” and entails far more than the idea of continued belief in the Savior. John further illustrates this abiding relationship with a parallel relationship of a vine and a branch.
The slipperiness of belief leads many to say what makes a person Christian has more to do with association with the Christian community. These people say the essence of Christianity is involvement in a community of Christ-followers and following the liturgy, rites, and practices of the Church.
This way of thinking has much to commend. As I was perusing A Testament to Freedom (a compilation of Bonhoeffer’s writings), I came across a essay called “Jesus Christ and the Essence of Christianity.” One point that struck me in particular was his argument concerning the directionality of faith—that God seeks us out, and instead we are simply open to him as opposed to.
To abide in Christ is an excellent and special experience. When you become saved, you are able to develop an intimate and personal relationship with Him. This is the want of Christians.
