Are you connected?

What did Christ mean when he said these words?

Joh 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.

Joh 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

In this sermon, given on 2-1-15 at LIFT Church in Fort Myers, FL, I explain the meaning of this passage.
