People's Bible Notes for John 15:5


Joh 15:5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches. He has already declared (Joh 15:1) that he is the True Vine, but he had not before declared that every disciple is a branch of the Vine. Observe that, not denominations, but church members, are the branches. The disciple, without Christ, "can do nothing". Paul declared, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Php 4:13).

    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!
