This chapter includes the following sections:

  • BEARING FRUIT BY THE OVERFLOW OF THE INNER LIFE
  • GOD’S DISPENSATION

  • THE SPIRIT EXPRESSED THROUGH THE BRANCHES

Some key verses are:

  • John 14:17 Even the Spirit of reality, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him; but you know Him, because He abides with you and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you.
  • John 15:1 I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes it away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing. 6 If one does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is dried up; and they gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. 8 In this is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and so you will become My disciples.
  • John 4:4 And He had to pass through Samaria.
