 Abide in Me

“Jesus said, ‘I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit… I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing’  John 15:1-2, 5
