Title: The vine and the branches
Bible 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.
Message: Let us glorify God by bringing fruit that pleases Him.
The image shows the close relationship that exists between Christ and His church.
* God as the vinedresser tends His vineyard, namely His church.
* Jesus as the vine looks after the branches and supplies them with the nutrients they need so they can develop and grow.
* The branches on the vine produce fruit: fruit of the Spirit, fruit of light, and fruit of our lips.
