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.

    Ye have not chosen me I have chosen you and ordained you that ye should go and bring fort fruit. This fruit should remain in you that everything you ask to my Father in my name you shall receive. Thank you Jesus for your words you are faithful to your promises thank you for the blessings you have given me praise God hallelujah

    The chapter in context -key: in me(Jesus) - deals with (believers, The Saved) Love, Abide and Fruit Bearing, vs 6. fruit(work) shall burn if we don't abide it becomes wood, hay, and stubble(1 Cor 3:11-15)..Fruit (Gal 5:22-23) Love then encompasses all Joy and Peace in us, (next three) with our brethren, (last three) with God. God's work thru us.. Faith in Jesus Christ and love for the brethren.
  • A disciple
    "..but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you." Do you ever think about why God had His Prophets write the Bible so large? We have to understand that God DOES INDEED intend us to know all things, but He waits for us to be able to bear it. There is no need, and absolutely no allowance for guessing, if we are true and sincere His friends!
