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.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.
We are to abide in Jesus like a branch abides in a tree. He is our life source. He is the tree, we are the branch.
And the roots of our life grow deep in him when we are abiding in him.
