I am the vine, you are the branches.
If you abide in me and I in you,
you will bear much fruit;
apart from me
you can do
The vine nourishes the branches,
the branches produce the fruit,
the fruit nourishes the world.
That’s how it works.
Get any of those out of order and you have nothing.
Union with the Vine is the only way to stay spiritually alive.
Hang on to the Vine, all you lovely branches.
The fruit will come.
My favorite word in the Bible that starts with “V” is VINE.
