1 { I Am The True Vine John 15:1-8 Pastor Keone

2 John 15:1-3 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.

3 God as the Gardener:   Desires fruitful branches   Cuts off unfruitful branches   Prunes fruitful branches to bear even more fruit

4 God as the Gardener:   Desires the branches to produce fruit   Loving obedience, Justice and Righteousness   Isaiah 5:-2,7 1 I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My loved one had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. 2 He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit… 7 The vineyard of the LORD Almighty is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah are the garden of his delight. And he looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.

5 God as the Gardener:   Desires the branches to produce fruit   Loving obedience, Justice and Righteousness   Fruit of the Spirit   Galatians 5: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self- control. Against such things there is no law.

6 God as the Gardener:   Cuts off unfruitful branches   Not speaking of Christians who have lost their salvation. Rather professing Christians who are not genuinely saved.   John 10: I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.   As seen in verse 5. There will be fruit in the life of a genuine believer

7 God as the Gardener:   Prunes fruitful branches to bear even more fruit   to purify” – to purify in motive or life   “to cleanse” – to remove things that prevent or obstruct fruitfulness   Pruning is painful

8 John 15:4-5 4 Remain in me, and I will 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. 5 "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.   You need to remain in Jesus in order to produce fruit.   If you remain in Jesus you will produce fruit.

9 John 15:6 6 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.   Those that did not remain in Jesus (professed faith, but produced no fruit) will face eternal punishment (vs 6)

10 John 15:7, If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you… 9 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.

11 Remaining in Jesus means:   To believe in Him as your Savior (vs 4)   To continue or persevere in believing (vs 7)   To follow God’s commandments in loving obedience (vs 9-10)

12 John 15:8 8 This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.   It brings glory to God if you are fruitful.
