scripture & snapshot



"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 be even more fruitful.  You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.  Remain in me, and I will 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.  I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."  John 15:1-5 

this is Jesus speaking, the branches are us, the believers.  i don't know about you but i'd rather not be the branch that is cut off.

  5. I love this section of scripture and the analogy! It might hurt a little when He prunes us, but we will always be better off if we allow Him to do His pruning! :)
