Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for John 15:6


15:6 If any one abide not in me - By living faith; not by Church communion only. He may thus abide in Christ, and be withered all the time, and cast into the fire at last. He is cast out - Of the vineyard, the invisible Church. Therefore he was in it once.


People's Bible Notes for John 15:6


Joh 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered. The lifeless, fruitless branches in the vineyard are lopped off and carried out, and wither and are burned. So, too, any one who does not abide in Christ, is severed from the Vine. They gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned (Revised Version). "They" (the angels at the great day; not "men", as in the Common Version) cast them into the fire and they are burned.
