Jesus is giving leaving instructions to his anxious disciples. How do they know they are safe? How do you know that you’re doing the right thing following Jesus? This text tells us that Jesus is the true vine – the Israel that Israel never was. If you are in Christ you are completely safe, and you will be fruitful and joyful, knowing and expressing the obedient love and power of Christ.
