V is for Vine

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
nothing.
John 15:5

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.

  1. One of my favs.
    Very spiritual couple. Mom was a Franciscan Sisters Affiliate of St. Rose convent in LaCrosse and Dad went to all her mettings. As Jesus is our spiritual Vine Mom was our family vine. None can seem to be that for me and my siblings now. To honor thier life of faith and family,
    I read it all for my Parents
    Sunny (Melvin) and Mary Ann Lipskas 60th wedding anniversary at Hi Point Steak House 2008. Dad was gone 2 years later. Mom 5 years later.
    My faith sprang from thiers.
    Thanks Dinah.
