I Am The True Vine
What does it mean to follow Jesus? In one of the very last things that Jesus says to his followers he tells them that he is the true vine and that they are to abide in him. He tells them this 10 times in just 11 verses. Without Jesus we have no life, we have no purpose, we have no salvation, we have nothing. Jesus realizes that life is incredibly difficult and that is the reason he calls us to abide in him.
