What a blessing it is to remain in Jesus! You will be connected to His love and He will cause you to bear much “fruit” in your life! Why ever cut yourself off from that?

John 15:1–8 (Listen)

I Am the True Vine

15:1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.

     1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.(KJV)

1. Every morning mercies new 
Fall as fresh as morning dew; 
Every morning let us pay 
Tribute with the early day; 
For Thy mercies, Lord, are sure, 
Thy compassion doth endure. 

2. Still the greatness of Thy love 
Daily doth our sins remove; 
Daily, far as east from west, 
Lifts the burden from the breast; 
Gives unbought to those who pray 
Strength to stand in evil day. 

3. Let our prayers each morn prevail 
That these gifts may never fail; 
And as we confess the sin 
And the Tempter’s power within, 
Feed us with the Bread of Life; 
Fit us for our daily strife. 

4. As the morning light returns, 
As the sun with splendor burns, 
Teach us still to turn to Thee, 
Ever-blessed Trinity. 
With our hands our hearts to raise 
In unfailing prayer and praise.
