Last week, we heard how Jesus compared Himself to a Good Shepherd to explain who He is and what He can do for us. This week He uses the analogy of a vine – how producing good fruit depends on the parent vine.
This reading tells us that Jesus is like the vine-grower who nurtures the vine and removes fruitless branches and prunes those that are fruitful so that they might produce even more. The disciples are the branches; they are to remain part of the vine and expected to grow and bear good fruit.
In this passage, Jesus is talking to His disciples – is He talking to you as well? Are you in the right place – with and in Jesus? Will WE produce good fruit?
