Main point summary
Jesus is the vine from which we stem, and if we are not in him, like dead branches, we will be burned for our unfruitfulness, but if we are in Jesus, our fruit will be abundant and bring glory to the Father, proving this way that we are genuinely His.
Jn 15:5 -8
I am the vine;
a you are the branches.
Whoever abides in me and I in him,
he it is that b bears much fruit,
for apart from me you can do nothing.
If anyone does not abide in me
c he is thrown away
like a branch and withers;
d and the branches are gathered,
thrown into the fire,
If e you abide in me,
and my words abide in you,
f ask whatever you wish,
and it will be done for you.
g By this my Father is glorified,
that you h bear much fruit
and so prove to be my disciples.
