‘Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” v.5

This is a powerful passage and just reading the verse at the top doesn’t give it complete justice.  Jesus is once again teaching about the importance of being connected with Him.  Meaning:

  • You believe that He is God’s Son
  • You receive Him as Savior and Lord
  • You obey what God says
  • You continue to learn and believe the Good News
  • You love God and others

Many people try to be good, honest people who do what is right.  But Jesus says that the only way to live a truly good life is to stay close to him, like a branch attached to the vine.  Apart from Christ our efforts are unfruitful.  Are you receiving the nourishment and life offered by Christ, the vine?  If not, you are missing a special gift he has for you.
