John 15:1-7

1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer.  2 Every branch in me that doesn't bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.  3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.  4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can't bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me.  5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.  6 If a man doesn't remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.  7 If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you.
