Bible: Jn 15:4-11

15:4 Remain 1  in me, and I will remain in you. 2  Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, 3  unless it remains 4  in 5  the vine, so neither can you unless you remain 6  in me.

15:5I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains 7  in me – and I in him – bears 8  much fruit, 9  because apart from me you can accomplish 10  nothing. 15:6 If anyone does not remain 11  in me, he is thrown out like a branch, and dries up; and such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, 12  and are burned up. 13  15:7 If you remain 14  in me and my words remain 15  in you, ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you. 16  15:8 My Father is honored 17  by this, that 18  you bear 19  much fruit and show that you are 20  my disciples.

15:9Just as the Father has loved me, I have also loved you; remain 21  in my love. 15:10 If you obey 22  my commandments, you will remain 23  in my love, just as I have obeyed 24  my Father’s commandments and remain 25  in his love. 15:11 I have told you these things 26  so that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete.
