    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.

    Thanks God that I am one of the chosen ones. the fact that He says He is the true vine and we are the branches, it is a must that we abide in Him, for if we do not we will bear no fruit, we might end up dry, and a dry branch is called wood and only goes to make fire and is finished. How I wish to abide in Him all the times so that i do not dry up and become the wood (useless creature here).

    God has chosen me : That is quite a statement coming from my Lord God : Since He has chosen me and ordained me to GO and bring forth fruit : and that fruit to remain : What God does : Sticks !! Whatever I ask in His name , He will do it for me : I must ask in accordance to His word which is His will !!

    That's true because Jesus is the law if he did not come people would have not known the truth because most of the things that were prohibited by the Jews was not true that's why he abolished other laws.

Master asked us to go an bear fruit and by doing this, he said His father will answer our prayer. Then as many child of God that will show that he loves, must obey any of his command to the letter, doing this is also attract his blessings to ourselves. We can call that chapter
