Jesus is the Vine
“I am the vine, and you are the branches. If a person remains in me and I remain in him, then he produces much fruit. But without me he can do nothing.” John 15:5
Grapes grow on vines. If a branch is cut off the vine, it will not grow any grapes. In fact it will die.
Jesus called himself the “vine” and said believers in him are branches. Like the grapevine gives life to the branches, Jesus gives life to you.
When you believe in Jesus, you should grow to be more like him.
You will begin to grow the Fruit of the Spirit in your life “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, selfcontrol.” (Galatians 5:22, 23a, NIV) You can not grow this fruit on your own. You need help from Jesus.
How do you stay connected to Jesus? Are you letting Jesus grow good fruit through you?
