References for John 15:1

      2 He removes any of my branches that don't produce fruit, and he trims any branch that produces fruit so that it will produce even more fruit.
      3 You are already trimmed because of the word I have spoken to you.
      4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. A branch can't produce fruit by itself, but must remain in the vine. Likewise, you can't produce fruit unless you remain in me.
      5 I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, then you will produce much fruit. Without me, you can't do anything.
      6 If you don't remain in me, you will be like a branch that is thrown out and dries up. Those branches are gathered up, thrown into a fire, and burned.
      7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.
      8 My Father is glorified when you produce much fruit and in this way prove that you are my disciples.
