John 15:1-2: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. (2) Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away….”
takes away in the Greek is to lift up; to bear; to carry
Every branch not bearing fruit He lifts up and carries. He bears them up. He doesn’t cut them off!
No one bears fruit without Him… He is the Vine. Those who are bearing fruit, He prunes so they can bear more fruit. And those bearing no fruit He gently, lovingly, patiently, lifts up and carries… bearing them!
The Father is a good Vinedresser (Husbandman) taking care of ALL the branches.
