The Vine and The Vinedresser Pt. 2: The Vinedresser

Jesus told many parables explaining who He is, who the Father is, and who we are. The parable of The Vine and The Vinedresser is no different. Jesus tells us that He is the Vine and that the Father is the Vinedresser, but what does that mean for us? What does the Vinedresser really do to the Vine and the Branches? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to the importance of the Vinedresser in the second part of his two-part series, The Vine and The Vinedresser Pt. 2: The Vinedresser.

The Vine and The Vinedresser Pt. 2: The Vinedresser

Jesus is the Vine, and the Father is the Vinedresser.

1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:1-5

The Vinedresser (our Heavenly Father) prunes us, trims us, and makes sure we’re healthy.

If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

John 15:6-11

It’s the Job of the Vinedresser to make sure that the branches on the Vine produce fruit.
