What is the imagery of Christ saying here? Who is the vine? Who are the branches? Are there other vines out there in your life trying to attach themselves to you? What are they? What makes Christ the true vine? Are you attached to Him today? In what way are you fully attached? How is Christ’s presence in you being seen in your life? What evidence of fruit that fits God’s vision for your life is evident? If there is no fruit, either God is putting down your spiritual roots, maturing your branch to be able to bear the weight of fruit or you are a cut off branch – totally outside of God’s will and vision for you. Which of these might be true for you? What is the promise offered in vs. 5 about bearing fruit? Ask God to make you a branch that bears much fruit.
