John 15:2-12 NCV

2 He cuts off every branch of mine that does not produce fruit. And he trims and cleans every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce even more fruit.
3 You are already clean because of the words I have spoken to you.
4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. A branch cannot produce fruit alone but must remain in the vine. In the same way, you cannot produce fruit alone but must remain in me.
5 "I am the vine, and you are the branches. If any remain in me and I remain in them, they produce much fruit. But without me they can do nothing.
6 If any do not remain in me, they are like a branch that is thrown away and then dies. People pick up dead branches, throw them into the fire, and burn them.
7 If you remain in me and follow my teachings, you can ask anything you want, and it will be given to you.
8 You should produce much fruit and show that you are my followers, which brings glory to my Father.
9 I loved you as the Father loved me. Now remain in my love.
10 I have obeyed my Father's commands, and I remain in his love. In the same way, if you obey my commands, you will remain in my love.
11 I have told you these things so that you can have the same joy I have and so that your joy will be the fullest possible joy.
12 "This is my command: Love each other as I have loved you.
