"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." ESV
The vine keeps the whole plant rooted, stable, and nourished. It is the source of life for the branches and the fruit that is produced. A branch that is severed from the vine will not survive. If we are not attached to Jesus Christ, we cannot survive spiritually. We are totally dependent on Him for our very lives, our stability, and our spiritual food. If we cut ourselves off from Him, all we will have left on which to survive is this cursed world and our own strength. Without Him, we are like dead, fallen branches.
Lord, thank You for allowing us to be part of You, because we have all we will ever need. In Your name we pray, Amen.
