This week our Gospel is John 15:1-8
This passage is one of the farewell discourses found in John, given by Jesus as He prepares his disciples for his coming crucifixion and death. In it we are reminded that Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. Further, that if we remain in Jesus we will bear fruit, but apart from Jesus we can do nothing. How do we remain in Jesus, much less bear fruit? How do we abide or live in Jesus?
