John 15:1-11

Jesus Is the Vine--Followers Are Branches

1 "1I am the true vine, and My Father is the 2vinedresser.
2 "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.
3 "3You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
4 "4Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot * bear fruit of itself unless * it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless * you abide in Me.
5 "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he 5bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing *.
6 "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is 6thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned.
7 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, 7ask whatever * you wish, and it will be done for you.
8 "My 8Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so 9prove to be My disciples.
9 "Just as 10the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.
10 "11If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as 12I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
11 "13These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your 14joy may be made full.
