Abide in Me, and I in you

  Abide in Me, and I in you,
As the branch cannot bear fruit
Of itself unless
It abides in the vine,
So neither can you
Unless you abide in Me.
1
I am the vine,
You are the branches,
He who abides in Me and I in him.
He bears much fruit
For apart from Me you can do nothing.
2
If you abide in Me and my words abide in you
Ask whatever you will and it will be done for you.
When we abide in the Lord and let His words abide in us,
We actually are one with Him as He works within us.
Then when we ask in prayer for whatever we will
It is not only we who are praying
He too is praying, in our praying.
This kind of prayer is related to fruit bearing
and will surely be answered.
3
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and I set you.
That you should go forth and bear fruit,
And that your fruit should remain,
That whatever you ask the Father in my name,
He may give you.

This is the universal spreading of Christ as the True Vine! He is the branch and we are the branches.When we abide in Christ as the universal Vine, we have the church life, a life of loving one another.

If we have such an abiding, we will have an effective prayers for fruit-bearing! When we abide in the Lord and let His words abide in us, we actually are one with Him and He works within us, and there will be a desire in us that comes out of His words, and His desire will become our desire. Amen. Hallelujah!

Praise the Lord, we have been grafted into Christ as the vine! What a mercy that we who were once the wild olive tree have been grafted into the cultivated tree (Christ).

We should always abide in Christ (the vine),for apart from Him we can do nothing.

Lord, keep us each day abiding in You.
