John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John 15:1, 5 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman…. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

The only quality of life Jesus came to give us to live is the abundant life. Receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior and having eternal life within us is just the beginning. Jesus talked about the abundant life in His teaching on the Vine and the Branches in John 15. The abundant life is the Christian life that is bearing fruit. Every believer can bear fruit. We will be on our way to the abundant fruit bearing life as soon as we accept this fact: He is the Vine and we are the Branches; without Him we can do nothing. Even as a branch cannot bear fruit of itself except it abide in the vine, neither can we except we abide in Christ.

We become a branch on the vine the moment we are saved. A living union was formed and just as a branch gets its life from the vine, so we get our life from Jesus. Jesus is the true vine, source of life, and genuine vine or “the real deal.” He does what a vine is supposed to do which is to nourish and give life as opposed to a false vine. There are other vines or things people connect to that are counterfeits that look like they’ll cause people to really live life like they want. He is the real deal people are looking for to have a great life. There is no greater life to live on Earth than the abundant life and only Jesus can give it to you. Money won’t do it. Fame won’t do it. Material things won’t do it. Leisure and pleasure won’t do it. Only Jesus is the True Vine. Your search can end at Jesus.
