I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman.
Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in Me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.
If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be My disciples.
As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you: continue ye in My love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love.
These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is My commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of My Father I have made known unto you.
Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you,
that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:
that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My name, He may give it you.
Just want to share this encouraging testimony of a teacher with her students:
In my yesterday’s session with our students during lunch time, one of the child says, teacher can you please pray for my mom coz she is sick. Hearing that, my heart was crushed so i told her of a story of an old woman who was in the hospital, that woman was also sick and i saw her in the lobby crying and i asked her why are you crying and then she told me, i was crying because of joy, because yesterday i was diagnosed with fluids in my lungs and my grand child pray for me and her churchmates too then just this morning the doctor found out that the water in my lungs was totally gone. While i was telling this testimony to the kids, their faces was so amazed and telling me really teacher wow. My other students told us too, you know teacher last time i was praying for june in the car coz her head was paining a lot. And i told them, that’s how powerful prayer is.
This is what i learned from the testimony of that child and the teacher, we can be fruitful in so many ways
