1 “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the
gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch of mine that
doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches
that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. 3
You have already been pruned and purified by the
message I have given you. 4 Remain in me, and I will
remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it
is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful
unless you remain in me.
5 “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches.
Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce
much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
9 “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me.
Remain in my love. 10 When you obey my
commandments, you remain in my love, just as I
obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his
love. 11 I have told you these things so that you will
be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!
42 All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and
to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s
Supper), and to prayer.
43 A deep sense of awe came over them
all, and the apostles performed many
miraculous signs and wonders. 44 And all
the believers met together in one place and
shared everything they had. 45 They sold
their property and possessions and shared
the money with those in need. 46 They
worshiped together at the Temple each
day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and
shared their meals with great joy and
generosity—47 all the while praising God and
enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And
each day the Lord added to their
fellowship those who were being saved.

disciples, went to the leading priests 15 and
asked, “How much will you pay me to betray
Jesus to you?” And they gave him thirty pieces of
silver. 16 From that time on, Judas began
looking for an opportunity to betray Jesus.

1 Corinthians 3
2 I had to feed you with milk, not with solid
food, because you weren’t ready for anything
stronger. And you still aren’t ready, 3 for you are
still controlled by your sinful nature. You are
jealous of one another and quarrel with each
other. Doesn’t that prove you are controlled by
your sinful nature? Aren’t you living like people
of the world? 4 When one of you says, “I am a
follower of Paul,” and another says, “I follow
Apollos,” aren’t you acting just like people of the

They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.
