I am the true Vine
- I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener…Remain in me, as I also remain in 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 you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:1;4-5)
- Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did. (1 John 2:6)
- What is Jesus saying by identifying himself as a vine? What is the role of the vineyard keeper?
