John 15:Chapter 15

John 15:1 I am the real vine, and My Father is the vine-dresser.

John 15:2 Every branch in Me that gives not fruit He takes away: and every branch that gives fruit, He prunes it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

John 15:3 Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken to you.

John 15:4 Stay in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot produce fruit by itself, unless it stays in the vine; no more can you, unless you stay in Me.

John 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches: He that stays in Me, and I in him, the same produces much fruit: for without Me you can do nothing.

John 15:6 If a man stay not in Me, he is cast out as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

John 15:7 If you remain in Me, and My words remain in you, you will ask what you will, and it will be done to you.

John 15:8 By this is My Father glorified, that you produce much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

John 15:9 As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you: continue in My love.

John 15:10 If you keep My commandments, you will stay in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and stay in His love.

John 15:11 These things I have spoken to you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

John 15:12 This is My commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:13 Greater love has no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.

John 15:15 No longer do I call you servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.

John 15:16 You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and produce fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatever you will ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you.

John 15:17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

John 15:18 If the world hate you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.

John 15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

John 15:20 Remember the word that I said to you, the servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My word, they will keep yours also.

John 15:21 But all these things will they do to you for My name’s sake, because they know not Him that sent Me.

John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.

John 15:23 He that hates Me hates My Father also.

John 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which no other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both Me and My Father.

John 15:25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their Law, They hated Me without a reason.

John 15:26 But when the Comforter has come, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of reality, who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me:

John 15:27 so you also will give witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.
