JOHN 15:5 (NKJV) I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in ME, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without ME you can do nothing.
EXPLANATION: Jesus explains how we are connected to Him by using a grape vine to illustrate how we (believers) are the branches and Jesus is the vine. Without being connected to the vine, there are no branches and consequently no fruit—which means no life! Therefore, without Him, we are LIFELESS– NOTHING! I’d rather have Jesus more than anything!
