John 15:1 – The True Vine

John 15:1
1
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

-Jesus identifies himself as the true vine and in doing so, establishes the reality of false vines.  There are countless religions out there that all promise a way to righteousness, a way to holiness, and, ultimately, a way to Heaven.  This is a real problem because these religions cloud the waters and lead many astray.  God the Father knew this would happen and sent His Son to bear witness to the truth so that everyone would have the chance to believe.  We live in a culture that places emphasis on how good your fruit looks, but in the eyes of God, all that matters is which vine you’re on.
