John 15:1-10 NLT

1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
2 He cuts off every branch that doesn't produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.
3 You have already been pruned for greater fruitfulness by the message I have given you.
4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful apart from me."
5 "Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
6 Anyone who parts from me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned.
7 But if you stay joined to me and my words remain in you, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted!
8 My true disciples produce much fruit. This brings great glory to my Father."
9 "I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.
10 When you obey me, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father and remain in his love.
