THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES (Message #1/3 * John 15:1-8) 06-07-2015

1. Jesus is the True Vine: and His Father is the Vinedresser
● The last “I am” statement by Jesus

● What Israel could not be Jesus is…

● The Father judges those who bear no fruit

● The Father purifies those who do bear fruit

2. Jesus is the Vine: and We are the Branches
● Abide in Christ as He abides in us: to bear much fruit

● Apart from Jesus we can do nothing

● Pray with confidence: by abiding in Christ as His word abides in us

● Glorify the Father by bearing much fruit as Christ’s true disciples
