TRUE VINEFebruary 1, 2021
Daily Prayer for February 1st, 2021¬†
Good morning, God‚ÄĒthank you! ūüėä
Jesus is the vine, and you are the vinedresser. I am a branch living from that beautiful vine. Therefore, Holy Spirit, please help me to be fruitful as I abide in you and your love so that my joy may be full. Without you, I can do nothing. I would wither away. As you have loved Jesus, Jesus has loved me unconditionally. You love us all! Because I know Jesus, and you sent me a helper, ‚Äúthe Spirit of truth,‚ÄĚ who proceeds from you,‚ÄĚ I will continue to tell the good news, about him! Amen.
John 15 ESV
I Am the True Vine
15¬†‚ÄúI am the¬†true vine, and my Father is¬†the vinedresser.¬†2¬†Every branch in me that does not bear fruit¬†he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes,¬†that it may bear more fruit.¬†3¬†Already¬†you are clean¬†because of the word that I have spoken to you.¬†4¬†Abide¬†in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.¬†5¬†I am the vine;¬†you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that¬†bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.¬†6¬†If anyone does not abide in me¬†he is thrown away like a branch and withers;¬†and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.¬†7¬†If¬†you abide in me, and my words abide in you,¬†ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.¬†8¬†By this my Father is glorified, that you¬†bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.¬†9¬†As the Father has loved me,¬†so have I loved you. Abide in my love.¬†10¬†If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as¬†I have kept¬†my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.¬†11¬†These things I have spoken to you,¬†that my joy may be in you, and that¬†your joy may be full.
12¬†‚ÄúThis is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.¬†13¬†Greater love has no one than this,¬†that someone lay down his life for his friends.¬†14¬†You are¬†my friends¬†if you do what I command you.¬†15¬†No longer do I call you servants,¬†for the servant¬†does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for¬†all that I have heard from my Father¬†I have made known to you.¬†16¬†You did not choose me, but¬†I chose you and appointed you that you should go and¬†bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that¬†whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.¬†17¬†These things I command you,¬†so that you will love one another.
The Hatred of the World
18¬†‚ÄúIf the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.¬†19¬†If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because¬†you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.¬†20¬†Remember the word that I said to you:¬†‚ÄėA servant is not greater than his master.‚Äô If they persecuted me,¬†they will also persecute you.¬†If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.¬†21¬†But¬†all these things they will do to you¬†on account of my name,¬†because they do not know him who sent me.¬†22¬†If I had not come and spoken to them,¬†they would not have been guilty of sin,¬†but now they have no excuse for their sin.¬†23¬†Whoever hates me hates my Father also.¬†24¬†If I had not done among them the works that no one else did,¬†they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have¬†seen and hated both me and my Father.¬†25¬†But¬†the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled:¬†‚ÄėThey hated me without a cause.‚Äô
26¬†‚ÄúBut¬†when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father,¬†he will bear witness about me.¬†27¬†And¬†you also will bear witness,¬†because you have been with me¬†from the beginning.
