John-15:- Christ Jesus is the True Vine of our Father and He requests to stay with Him - 1. John 15
The Vine and the Branches
1 Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, meaning that the person is enlightened and guided into the right path. Any temptations of the heart are pruned away.[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
5 Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned as during the sectarian riots. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my FatherĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my Labourers and not the disciples. We bear Fruit to glorify our Father in honour of Christ Jesus, the anointed Son of God that we desire to Marry to be One with our Bride Groom.
9 Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, here it is a corruption as Christ Jesus came to set us Free and not to impose his Will on us as in command you do, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my FatherĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Will is better than commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command and it is better if it is that Our FatherĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Will is this: Love, Agape, each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down oneĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s life for oneĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Brethren is better than friends. 14 You are my Brethren and not friends if you do our FatherĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Will and not what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his masterĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s business. Instead, I have called you Brethren and not friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruitĂ˘â‚¬â€ťfruit that will lastĂ˘â‚¬â€ťand so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my earnest Request and not command: Love each other.
