“I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer.
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.
You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
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.
I am the vine. You are the branches.
He who remains in me and I in him bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
