................................................................Mark and Colette Carr

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will bear even more. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken. Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you are joined with me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, the harvest is sure to be abundant; apart from me you can do nothing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he is – when you produce grapes; when you mature as my disciples. I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Now, make yourselves at home, in my love.

You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 5

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will

bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”
