Supposedly, Jesus is the vine, and we are the branches. With that analogy, he says that if we are not connected to Him, we cannot bear fruit.
If our very lives depend on him, then…
Why do we ignore the promptings of the Holy Spirit and not spend time in prayer?
Why do we ignore the promptings of the Holy Spirit and not spend time in scripture?
When godly people come into our lives to hold us accountable, why do we ignore them?
Why do we attempt to do things without him?
Why do we expect to bear fruit without him?
“If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up and thrown into the fire and burned” – John15:6.
What does Jesus mean? I think he means that when we separate ourselves from him, that we will die.
