If Jesus

If Jesus

If my Savior He would be,
If He gave His all for me,
If His friend, He'd have me be,
If His Spirit dwells in me,
If He, "The Truth" abides in me,
If He gives to me his wisdom free,
If I would His servant be,
If for his work, He strengthens me,
If where He leads I follow free,
A glorious life, He knows, I'll see!

Love: Howard

Jesus Is The Vine

Jesus, the True Vine
1"I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2He cuts off every branch that doesn't produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. 3You have already been pruned for greater fruitfulness by the message I have given you. 4Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful apart from me.

5"Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. 6Anyone who parts from me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. 7But if you stay joined to me and my words remain in you, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted! 8My true disciples produce much fruit. This brings great glory to my Father.

9"I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. 10When you obey me, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father and remain in his love. 11I have told you this so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!
