On being pruned and abiding
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 07/12/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series of four sessions teaches some profound truths based on John: 15, "I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser", and how Jesus symbolically used the grapevine to illustrate His words. "Secrets of the Vine" was Dr. Wilkinson's second book in his "Breakthrough Series" (the best-seller "The Prayer of Jabez" was the first, "A Life God Rewards" the third)), and he demonstrates on a vine that is part of the set just how a vinedresser trains and prunes the vine for optimum fruit, and compares God's discipline and pruning (though they may feel the same, are quite different), and how God uses each for opposite purposes. The fruit of the vine symbolizes "good works", and the set also includes four big baskets, that contain from zero grapes to brimming with clusters, and the four "Sessions" are on how we can get from the empty basket to the destiny God has in store for us, and have a life overflowing with goodness by following His will.
Dr. Wilkinson has inspired me in my walk with the Lord, and I find his series of films a great help. Biblically based and put forth in a format that is well organized, these Sessions can be heard repeatedly, with more to be gained with each viewing, and are excellent for personal use or a small study group.
Total running time is 229 minutes.
"I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in Him, bears much fruit, for without Me you can do nothing" (John 15:5)."
Opening scriptures to the understanding
Lorrie B. | Vashon Island, Wa | 12/24/2005

"What a fabulous work this is. We are viewing this series in our Sunday school sessions and more than once I've put my face in my hands to hide my emotions at the overwhelming love and patience that God has for us. Bruce Wilkinson does a beautiful job of teaching these truths. His voice is just right, his style is attractive. He uses himself as an example of the common error experienced by christians everywhere - we try to do "good works" in our own strength and we burn out. Bruce shows the scriptural answer to the problem and it is a huge relief to discover that God is just waiting to do it for us, in us. For me, this is the best teaching I've ever received in my christian walk in 35 years. God bless all those who partake of the grace of God."

"This great DVD explores John 15 the vine and the branch parable. It shows the walk of a believer and the steps we enter into with this life in Christ. Bruce does a wonderful job with great visuals about vineyard caring and why pruning and other activities that seem destructive are so important for true growth. I loved this DVD and the message of steps of growth and the importance of abiding in Christ. Because of the great props used in this DVD you see what Jesus was actually describing and the nueances of a vineyard are explored. This is a great exploration into the importance abiding in the word and in The Father to bear much fruit for the Kingdom. By abiding in Christ this bearing fruit is not works of the flesh but of the True Life of Christ flowing into us and then through us. You cant go wrong getting this DVD. Be blessed JB"
Excellent Series on How to Be More Fruitful for God
Michael Taylor | Indian Trail NC | 01/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is about the third or fourth video series I have watched by Bruce Wilkinson. The content of Secrets of the Vine is excellent, just like his other series.

The content is as follows:

1. Help us discover what we were born for - a life of abundant impact and significance for God.
2. Discover what God desires for you and how He works in your life to help you bear fruit for Him.
3. Discover the secrets in how God brings you from unfruitfulness to fruit-bearing.
4. The various stages that God brings each of us through to bring us to fruitfulness.
5. Find out how God brings us to more fruit.
6. Learn more about how God works in your life and what He wants for you.
7. Desiring a deeper relationship with God that will make us a blessing to those around you.
8. Discover how to come to joyful abundance in your life.

One of the points made that most affected was the reminder that instead of working more for Christ, we need to abide (spend more time) with Christ. When we abide, then we will experience more of His power in our lives and produce more fruit for His glory. In today's fast-paced lifestyle, I needed to hear this point again to remind me that apart from Jesus Christ, I am utterly helpless and hopeless without Him. With Him, I have all I will ever need!

Highly recommended. Watch, enjoy, and be challenged!"
