Jn 15: 1-8

”I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. 

Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.

Vine Grower

In the Gospel, Jesus reminds us that we are branches on the vine. He has pruned us with his words to bear many fruits. God’s desire is for us to remain united with Jesus through his teachings. Like the disciples we have been pruned to go out into the world and do his will.

I have realized that when I move away from God, my branch withers away.  I constantly work on strengthening my relationship with God through the scriptures. Praying with scripture allows me to come to know Jesus and love him to be a more faithful disciple.

Will you allow the vine grower to prune your branch to bear more fruit?

Melissa Andrade is the academic vice principal at St. John’s College in Belize.

 

Prayer

Lord, you are the vine, and I am the branch connected to you by the power of your word. Empower me to bear the bountiful fruits to your glory. Amen.
