I’m the True Vine, You’re the Branches (John 15)

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.  

He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.    You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.

No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine.   Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.  

“I am the vine; you are the branches.   

If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.   If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 

John 15: 1-7 NIV
