John 15:1-3 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

The connection between a branch and the main tree is essential for the branch’s survival and its ability to bear fruit. In a similar way, as children of God created in His image and likeness, our very existence relies on our relationship with God. It is unrealistic to believe that we can live our lives independently of the source of life itself, God Almighty. John 3:16 reveals God’s immense love for the world, demonstrated through the gift of Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth, and the life. Recognizing the world’s need for a savior, God provided us with Jesus, the true vine and the ultimate source of life for believers.

“Without him we can do nothing”

As believers, we are like branches connected to this life-giving vine, drawing sustenance and vitality from Christ, just as branches draw essential nutrients from the vine. While it may appear that branches themselves bear fruit, in reality, it is the vine that orchestrates and enables this process.

John 15:1-8 conveys this truth: “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away, and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes so that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me, you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away like a withered branch and is gathered and thrown into the fire, and it burns. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this, My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be My disciples.”

These verses emphasize the vital importance of remaining connected to Jesus, the true vine. Just as a branch flourishes when it remains attached to the vine, we too experience spiritual growth, productivity, and fulfillment when we abide in Christ. Apart from Him, we are powerless and unable to bear fruit. However, by maintaining a deep and intimate relationship with Christ, allowing His words to dwell within us, we can ask and receive according to His will. In doing so, we bring glory to God and demonstrate our discipleship by bearing much fruit.
