CHAPTER 15

2. The Organism of the Triune God
in the Divine Dispensing
15:1--16:4

a. The Vine and the Branches
Being an Organism to Glorify the Father
by Expressing the Riches of the Divine Life
15:1-11

1 I am the 1true avine, and My Father is the 2husbandman.

2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes it away; and every branch that bears fruit, He 1prunes it that it may bear more fruit.

3 You are already aclean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

4 aAbide in Me and I bin you. As the branch cannot bear fruit 1of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.

5 I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, he bears amuch fruit; for apart from Me you can do bnothing.

6 If one does not abide in Me, he is 1acast out as a branch and is dried up; and they gather them and cast them into the bfire, and they are cburned.

7 If you abide in Me and My 1awords abide in you, 2ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.

8 In this is My Father 1aglorified, that you bear much fruit and so you will become My bdisciples.

9 As the Father has aloved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.

10 If you 1keep My acommandments, you will abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.

11 These things I have spoken to you that My 1joy may be in you and that your ajoy may be made full.
