Vos palmites | The Branches

"I am the vine, and you are the branches" - John 15:5.


Through this parable, Jesus invites us to abide in Him. Jesus is the true vine, so if we abide in Him, we will bear abundant fruit. In our weakness, vulnerability, and sins, the Lord invites us not to avoid Him. Even though we have committed great sins, we are to remember that the Lord always seeks us.

If we are not with Him, then as branches of the vine we will slowly wither and dry up. In various life experiences, we experience how each person becomes a healthy branch and also bears abundant fruit in the name of Jesus. All that He needs from us is our faith. In any difficulties, we must remain united with Jesus as the true Vine. Thus, we will flourish and bear abundant fruit in our work and ministry. Our life will be more meaningful when we produce good quality fruit for others.
