A farmer is very careful when he plants a vine. He makes sure that the soil has enough water. The farmer protects the small vine from wind and storms. And he trims the branches on the vine so that they will grow strong.
In our Bible verses today, Jesus compared Himself to a vine. And He said that people who follow Him are the branches connected to the vine. “If you stay joined to me, and I to you, you will produce plenty of fruit. But separated from me, you won’t be able to do anything” (verse 5b).
If a tree branch is connected to a tree, it will stay strong and make fruit. But if the wind blows it down, it will die. In the same way, when we stay connected to Jesus, we will be able to grow and bring others to Him. But if we do not stay connected to Jesus, we will die spiritually.
Stay connected to Jesus today. Read the Bible and learn more about Him. Then share the Good News about salvation with everyone you meet.
