John 15: 1-8 I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he trims clean so that it will be more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you……
This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples…NIV
