John 15:4-5

4 1Abide 2in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
5 I am the vine; 3you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that 4bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
