How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

Summary

Principles of the Vine

John 15:1-8

My Sermon Notes from March 24, 2019 Full Text: John 15:1-8

1 我是真葡萄樹,我父是栽培的人。2 凡屬我不結果子的枝子,他
就剪去;凡結果子的,他就修理乾淨,使枝子結果子更多。 3現
在你們因我講給你們的道,已經乾淨了。4 你們要常在我裡面,
我也常在你們裡面。枝子若不常在葡萄樹上,自己就不能結果子;
你們若不常在我裡面,也是這樣。5 我是葡萄樹,你們是枝子。
常在我裡面的,我也常在他裡面,這人就多結果子;因為離了我,
你們就不能做什麼。6 人若不常在我裡面,就像枝子丟在外面枯
乾,人拾起來扔在火裡燒了。7 你們若常在我裡面,我的話也常
在你們裡面,凡你們所願意的,祈求,就給你們成就。8 你們多
結果子,我父就因此得榮耀,你們也就是我的門徒了。
1
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me
that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be
even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.
4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must
remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 5 “I am the
vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit;
apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch
that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire
and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you
wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much
fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
(約翰福音 John 15:1-8)

 

Discussion Questions:
1. What are the 3 principles of the Vine and please explain the purpose of each principle:
Disciplining, Pruning and Abiding.
2. Name some pursuit in your life that is taking away your priority to seek his kingdom first.
Are there any sin issues that you need to repent?
3. Make a concrete plan on how you pursue His plea, to abide in Him, for without abiding, we
are nothing.
4. Application: Intentionally find opportunities where you can give more love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control until you are bearing much
fruit.
