7 When asking something of God, pause to consider whether your request and your life are in line with his desires.

8 “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” John 15:7 “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” John 15:7

9 John 15:1 The Vine and the Branches “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. (NIV) “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. (NKJV) gardener, vine dresser = literally, land worker, “geo + ergon” (γεωργ ό ς, geōrgos, that is, in English, “George”) John 15:1 The Vine and the Branches “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.

10 John 15:2-3 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 [i.e. “pruned”] because of the word I have spoken to you. “prunes” = καθα ί ρω = kathairō (verb) “prunes” = καθα ί ρω = kathairō (verb) “clean” = καθαρ ό ς = katharos (noun) “clean” = καθαρ ό ς = katharos (noun) --same idea as “purified by fire” John 15:2-3 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 [i.e. “pruned”] because of the word I have spoken to you. “prunes” = καθα ί ρω = kathairō (verb) “prunes” = καθα ί ρω = kathairō (verb) “clean” = καθαρ ό ς = katharos (noun) “clean” = καθαρ ό ς = katharos (noun) --same idea as “purified by fire”

11 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. (John 15:4) --a continuous state of connection, like a branch or as the root is part of a tree --this is a 2-way, 2-person effort 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. (John 15:4) --a continuous state of connection, like a branch or as the root is part of a tree --this is a 2-way, 2-person effort

12 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.

Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. (John 15:4) --this is a 2-way, 2-person effort --and what is this fruit?

13 And what is this fruit? 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5: NIV) And what is this fruit? 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5: NIV)

14 And what is this fruit? 1 Corinthians 3:6-7 (NKJV) 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but [it is] God who gives the increase. And what is this fruit? 1 Corinthians 3:6-7 (NKJV) 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but [it is] God who gives the increase.

15 And what is this fruit? For one person, planting, for another, watering... And yes, for someone else: A quote: I had the honor of introducing them to Jesus, personally. All of these are the fruit of remaining “in Me” (that is, in Christ). And what is this fruit? For one person, planting, for another, watering...

16 I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (In contrast:) If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. (John 15:5 NIV) How does this happen?... I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (In contrast:) If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. (John 15:5 NIV) How does this happen?...

17 ... How does this happen?... If we were to stop listening to the word, (see verses 3 and 7) 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you I have spoken to you If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.. (John 15:3, 7 NIV)... How does this happen?... If we were to stop listening to the word, (see verses 3 and 7) 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you I have spoken to you If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.. (John 15:3, 7 NIV)

18 (... How does this happen?... continued ) or if we were to stop following Christ’s commands ( see verses 9-10 ) 9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.

How does this happen?... continued ) or if we were to stop following Christ’s commands ( see verses 9-10 ) 9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. (John 15:9-10 NIV) Clearly, if we do not keep his commands, we will not remain in His love

19 (and in case we’re not clear about it, just what is His command?... ) 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15: NIV) this is the definition of ultimate love, ultimate care (and in case we’re not clear about it, just what is His command?... ) 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15: NIV) this is the definition of ultimate love, ultimate care

20 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

21 “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” (John 15:7 NIV) Clearly, the main task is to “remain” in Christ, and trust in His effort to remain in us. Then, ask for whatever you wish... “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” (John 15:7 NIV) Clearly, the main task is to “remain” in Christ, and trust in His effort to remain in us.
