The evening series has had us looking at the “I AM” statements of Jesus. We have already talked about Jesus being the Light, the Gate, the Bread of Life, the Good Shepherd and the Way, the Truth and the Life. Each of these sayings reveals some aspect of who Jesus is. Today Jesus takes us to a vineyard when he says, I am the true vine. Throughout the Old Testament, vineyard language is used to portray Israel and its relationship to God. In John 15 Jesus picks up this old vineyard song. Jesus says that He is the true vine. He is the true Israel. He is the true Messiah. Only in Him can true life and true fruitfulness be found. Not only is Jesus the vine, but we are the branches. Through our relationship with Jesus Christ we are connected to life-giving faith and sustenance. The branches that abide in the true Vine represent those who are truly saved and the promise of Jesus is that He will remain with them. So what does it mean to know Jesus as the true vine? What does it mean to ‘remain in Him’? These are great questions we will look at on Sunday night.
