THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES

The symbol of the vine and the branches is an expression of the union between Christ and His people. We have no power unless we are connected to the vine. Have you ever noticed a branch that has fallen
from a tree? The fallen branch has little or no meaning. That is exactly the way we are. Without our link to the vine, life has no meaning. In John 15:5, we find these words:

“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.”

Read this entirechapter when you get a chance. You will see that the Father, as the Vinedresser, prunes unfruitful branchesand removes them. That is what He does for us, for without the branch we cannot bearfruit. This is the fellowship we have with Christ, and a sign of our complete dependence upon Him. It is not only the condition for fruitful service, but for a bountiful life.  It is my prayer today that we are all joined to the vine.
