slide5

1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

slide6

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

THE DIVINE CONNECTION

1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 

The True Vine is JESUS

The Gardner is THE FATHER

The Branches are US

slide8

HOW THE GARDNER WORKS TO CULTIVATE THE VINE & TO CONNECT TO THE BRANCHES:

2 He cuts off every branch in THE VINE that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 

THE OBJECTIVE IS THAT EVERY BRANCH BEARS FRUIT.

slide9

3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 

THE WORD OF GOD is the Gardner’s tool to clean and prune each branch and keep the connection.

The CLEANING PROCESS keeps the signal ON.

slide10

HOW THE BRANCH CONNECTS TO THE VINE IN ORDER TO BEAR:

4Remainin me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

slide12

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches.

JESUS IS THE VINE

WE ARE THE BRANCHES

THE VINE IS CHRIST + THE BRANCHES= THE BODY OF CHRIST

slide14

WHAT HAPPENS TO A BRANCH THAT REMAINS CONNECTED TO THE VINE?

If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 

slide16

WHAT IF A BRANCH DOES NOT REMAIN CONNECTED TO THE VINE?

6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 

THE BRANCH WITHERS ( DRIES UP) AND GETS BURNED.

slide17

HOW CAN A BRANCH REMAIN CONNECTED TO THE VINE?

7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 

We have to remain in Christ and in the Vine (the Body of Christ)= ID

The Words of Christ have to remain in us= PASSWORD

slide18

RESULTS OF THIS CONNECTION

WE BEAR MUCH FRUIT

WE SHOW WE ARE DISCIPLES OF CHRIST

WE GLORIFY THE FATHER

POWERFUL CONNECTION
