THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES

In Him scriptures are Bible passages that talk about our union with Christ, who we are in Him, how God sees and treats us, how we (the New Creation folks) should see ourselves, what we have, the life and ability of God at work in us because of this union, and what God can do through us because we are one with divinity.

These scriptures carry expressions such as ‘In Christ’, ‘In Him’, ‘In the beloved’, In the Lord’, ‘by/through Christ’, ‘In whom’, ‘By Him/whom’, etc.

John 15:5, 7 AMP

  1. “I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me (cut off the vital union with Me) you can do nothing.”
  2. “If you live in Me (abide vitally united Me) and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.”

We are one with God NOW. The New Creation is vitally united with Christ NOW.

I Corinthians 6:17

“… he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.”

He is our life. We are the fruit bearing part of him. We are the expression of who He is. His life flows through us and humanity is blessed.

We must consciously let His Word dominate us. Faith finds expression to the extent that we practice the word.

The Word is the true mirror through which we see who we really are. It reveals Christ. In Him we see ourselves. Now we can bear His fruit, blessing mankind.
