Jesus the Vine

  In John 15:5-7, Jesus speaks about doing good things for God, about working for and bearing good fruit for the Kingdom of God.     

  Read His words very, very carefully, and tell me if a mere man can say them:

 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me. 

 6 If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers. They gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 

 7 If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you." John 15

  Now, let us look closely at the implications of Jesus' words.

  "You can do nothing without Me?"

  That means you can do nothing good for the kingdom unless He is in you and with you.

  "If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers?"

  That means your spiritual fruit cannot survive away from Him.

  "If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you?"

  That means your relationship with Him and your obedience to His Word gives you access to the power of God.

  These are not the words of any ordinary man.

  These are not the words of a mere prophet.

  Jesus is no ordinary man. 

  Jesus is no mere prophet.

  Jesus is YHWH GOD!


Ask Him into your heart today
so that you can begin your relationship with God
and start bearing fruit for the kingdom!
