3. A DEPENDENT People:
And so, for the true branches—people truly united to Christ through faith—our righteousness, our faith, our joy, our life, and our future are not our own.
John 15:5-8 I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
We are wholly dependent, as mere branches, on the life giving vine that is Jesus Christ. Apart from Him, there is no spiritual life and no hope for heaven. Not only this, but God the Father is working among His people like a vine dresser who cares for the health of the union between the vine and branches by pruning away fruitless, lifeless branches so that the true branches may flourish, both individually and in community with each other. And so, for the true branches—people truly united to Christ through faith—our righteousness, our faith, our joy, our life, and our future are not our own.
