Bible: John 15:1-6

The Vine and the Branches

15:1I am the true vine 1  and my Father is the gardener. 2  15:2 He takes away 3  every branch that does not bear 4  fruit in me. He 5  prunes 6  every branch that bears 7  fruit so that it will bear more fruit. 15:3 You are clean already 8  because of the word that I have spoken to you. 15:4 Remain 9  in me, and I will remain in you. 10  Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, 11  unless it remains 12  in 13  the vine, so neither can you unless you remain 14  in me.

15:5I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains 15  in me – and I in him – bears 16  much fruit, 17  because apart from me you can accomplish 18  nothing. 15:6 If anyone does not remain 19  in me, he is thrown out like a branch, and dries up; and such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, 20  and are burned up. 21
