“Study this holy mystery until you see Christ as the true Vine, bearing, strengthening, supplying, inspiring all His branches, being and doing in each branch all it needs, and the abiding will come of itself…. A branch, utterly helpless, and yet just as manifestly set apart before God and men, as wholly given up to the work of bearing fruit, as the Vine itself… Yes, by His grace, I will be nothing less than a branch, and all He means it to be, that through me, He may bring forth His fruit. You are the branch –You need be nothing more.”
[Andrew Murray – The True Vine]
I am the vine, ye are the branches:
He that abideth in Me, and I in him,
The same bringeth forth much fruit:
For without Me ye can do nothing.
