Abiding In The Vine
 
Do we recognize the value
Of an attachment to the Vine?
Take notice of the nourishment
Within the bread and wine?
 
Communion with the source is
So important to each branch…
For bearing fruit without Him
Doesn’t even stand a chance.
 
 Be prepared for lots of pruning
For in order to produce…
Things hindering our growth in God
Just have got to get cut loose.
 
 If we’re faithful to remain in Him…
He promises the same.
And whatever we desire can be
Delivered in His Name.
 
Obedience to His command
To love is still a must…
And He still makes a friend of
Any servant He can trust.
 
Remember, He laid down His life
With you and I in mind.
He paid a debt He didn’t owe…
Such love can’t be defined.
 
Commitment to His cause seems
Very little to invest
Considering the price He paid
To put our sins to rest.
 
If being dead to sin can mean
To dwell in the Divine…
Then, alleluia, I will keep
Abiding in the Vine.

John 15:1-5
I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.
 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit
 he takes away, and every branch that does bear
 fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.  Already
 you are clean because of the word that I have spoken
 to you.  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch
 cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine,
 neither can you, unless you abide in me.
 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides
 in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit,
for apart from me you can do nothing.
 
John 15:12-17
“This is my commandment, that you love one
 another as I have loved you. Greater love has
 no one than this, that someone lay down his life
 for his friends.  You are my friends if you do what I
 command you.  No longer do I call you servants,
 for the servant does not know what his master is doing;
 but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard
 from my Father I have made known to you.  You did not
 choose me, but I chose you and appointed you
 that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit
 should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father
 in my name, he may give it to you.  These things
I command you, so that you will love one another.
