I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me, John 15:1-4 NKJV.
Time and again he does the pruning, taking away every branch that bears no fruit, and every branch that bears fruit He prunes or looks after it, that it may bear more fruit.
Also one bears fruit and much fruit only if he abides in him. Unless we abide in Him, in the vine, in his doctrine, neither can we bear fruit, otherwise the fruit we produce would be wild grapes. He said, "for without Me you can do nothing."
Him is the source for all our livelihood, all goodness, righteousness, and truth. Whether it is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness and faithfulness - the fruit of the spirit, all comes from him. If he’s not the source, come the end of the age he says, "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity" Matthew 7:23.
He says, "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples" John 15:6-8.
Some people ask how come my prayers are not answered?
He said My words must abide in you, then you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
By this God is glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so will you be His disciples if you’re still attached to the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the true vine.
