“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
God is the true Vine . We are the branches of Vine. When the branches break and fall to the ground, it is not worthy of being tree . It cannot be used for other purpose. It is just thrown into fire. If the branches don’t get water and nutrients from roots of tree, it cannot bear a good fruit . It is thrown away and withers, such branches are picked up and thrown into the fire and burned.
Likewise, If we are apart from God, we cannot do anything for our salvation. We will be thrown away to hell. Then, how can we remain in God ? We should study the teachings of God and obey the words of God in Zion.
I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand— I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’ “
