true vine; and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me, that beareth not fruit, he will take away; and every one that beareth fruit he will purge it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now you are clean by reason of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in me; and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine ; you the branches; he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit ; for without me you can do nothing. If any one abide not in me; he shall be cast forth as a branch, and shall wither, and they shall gather him up, and cast him into the fire, and he burneth. If you abide in me, and my word abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you.

Wherein you shall greatly rejoice, if now you must be for a little time made sorrowful in divers temptations : that the trial of your faith (much more precious than gold which is tried by the fire) may be found unto praise, and glory, and honor at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
