People's Bible Notes for John 15:1


Joh 15:1 The True Vine SUMMARY OF JOHN 15: The Vine and the Branches. Bearing Fruit. Glorifying the Father. The Greatest Love. The World's Hatred. The Cloak for Sin. I am the true vine. The scene must be kept in mind. The Lord and his disciples had just eaten the last supper. He had said, "Arise, let us go hence" (Joh 14:31). They had risen, but were still standing in the room. On the table, from whence they had just risen, was the "fruit of the vine", and the Lord had said he would never drink it again upon the earth. In the Old Testament, the Vine is often used as the type of Israel, planted and tended by the Almighty as the husbandman. See Isa 5:1 Ps 80:8-16 Jer 2:21. Israel, however, had proved a wild and fruitless Vine. Instead of it, therefore, Christ had now been planted by the Father as the True Vine.

    If you don't abide in Christ and he in you , you can do nothing! Speaking of the vine, if you are not bearing fruit or the right fruit such as the fruit of the Spirit! If you are not producing fruit in your life, The Father Will Take It Away! (Don't let 6 strong men have to take you to Church! Check your fruit and don't allow Sin to Destroy The Plans and Purpose God Has for You and Me!

    Trusting in GOD with everything... Letting Him have His way. Putting my life in His hands so He leads me.
