The Fruit of the Vine

We are the branches, and Jesus is the vine.
God tells us this parable to give us a sign.
If we the branch bear no fruit in our time, 
The barren branches Jesus will cut off.

Is this so that others might bear more fruit?
This parable is fearful, and does not suit!
Am I a branch that is torn from its root?

I want to bear fruit, and be so prolific.
Lord, help me not to be a branch that is sick.
Change my priorities, please make it quick!

I want to be securely attached to the vine.
I desire to blossom to show others a sign.
I gave myself to Christ, I’m no longer mine.

        In Jesus name, Amen
John 15: 1 - 5 ~ “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it might bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me and I in you. As a branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
