“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. 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. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. 

John 15:5-8

1.) What does Jesus compare us to in the first part of this verse?

2.) What do you think Jesus means when he says, “bear much fruit” at the end of the passage?

3.) How can this passage be used for strengthening your commitment to God?
