Encyclopedia of 7700 Illustrations 6853 Vine Clings in Fiercest Storm

The vine clings to the oak during the fiercest of storms. Although the violence of nature may uproot the oak, twining tendrils still cling to it. If the vine is on the side of the tree opposite the wind, the great oak is its protection: if it is on the exposed side, the tempest only presses it closer to the trunk.

In some of the storms of life, God intervenes and shelters us; while in others He allows us to be exposed, so that we will be pressed more closely to Him.

John 15:1-2

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh it away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he cleanseth it, that it may bear more fruit.

No fruit on the branch the branch must go.
When you bear fruit, the Father cleanses it, or prunes it.

3Already ye are clean because of the word which I have spoken unto you. 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, except ye abide in me. 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for apart from me ye can do nothing.

The reason why we can become clean is by Him who speak to us.
We need to abide in Jesus and Jesus needs to abide in us.
Our fruits come through Jesus, without Him we can do nothing.

6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; and so shall ye be my disciples.

Scene of the second coming of our Lord as the branches that did not produce fruits are cast into the fire.
Abiding in Christ, gives you the privilege of asking Jesus anything at it is given to you.
God is glorified and we become His disciples when we bear much fruit.
