New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus, the True Vine
15 “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener.
2 He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit,
and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.
3 You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you.
4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit
if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.
We Are The Branches
Offshoot of the vine
In partnership so sublime
Please keep us close at hand. Guard us from the evil in this world and make us fruitful.
