I am the vine;
you are the branches.
If you remain in Me
and I in you,
you will bear much fruit;
apart from Me
you can do nothing.
I can never, ever make this statement without it being false:
“I can bear fruit in God’s kingdom apart from Jesus.”
It’s not a true statement for me.
It’s not a true statement for you, either.
The branches must stay connected to the vine.
