Title: I am the true vine
Text verse: John 15: 5
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.
To be connected with Jesus Christ and to abide in Him is a hallmark of true discipleship and a guarantee of eternal life.
The vine and the branches are images for Christ and His disciples.
If the disciples (the branches) abide in Jesus (the vine), they will
- bear fruits of love,
- experience Him in their prayers,
- experience the blessing of God by keeping the commandments and obeying the gospel,
- be permitted to participate at the return of Jesus.
