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 15:4-5
We thank You, Heavenly Father, that You are the vinedresser and You look for Christ-likeness in us. The same life that is in the vine is in its branches. In Christ, who is the true vine, there is both spiritual and bodily life. We submit to Your pruning to cut off what does not look like You. For when we abide in Christ, our prayers are effective. We glorify You, Lord, in our fruit bearing and our joy becomes complete in You.
