The vine is Jesus; we are the branches. We need to abide in the vine, who is Jesus Christ, himself. We need to bear fruit or He will cut us off. He takes care of those who continue to bear fruit. The fruit that He wants us to bear is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control. The branches need the vine, or they will not survive. The vine needs the branches or it will not produce fruit. Jesus Christ chose us. We should accept this calling. He wants the best for us and if we choose Him, we will receive His award and reward. We need to stay in the vine, in order to, produce fruit. If we continue to abide in Christ, we will grow. Christians need to draw their strength from the vine, who is Jesus Christ, so that they may be strong in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is our life. We need to remember that.
