Scripture Reading- Psalm 80:7-15 & John 15:1-11

Psalm 80:7–15 (ESV)

	[7] Restore us, O God of hosts;
		let your face shine, that we may be saved!
        [8] You brought a vine out of Egypt;
		you drove out the nations and planted it.
	[9] You cleared the ground for it;
		it took deep root and filled the land.
	[10] The mountains were covered with its shade,
		the mighty cedars with its branches.
	[11] It sent out its branches to the sea
		and its shoots to the River.
	[12] Why then have you broken down its walls,
		so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
	[13] The boar from the forest ravages it,
		and all that move in the field feed on it.
	[14] Turn again, O God of hosts!
		Look down from heaven, and see;
	        have regard for this vine,
	[15] the stock that your right hand planted,
		and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.

John 15:1-11 ESV

[1] “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. [2] Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. [3] Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. [4] Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. [5] 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. [6] If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. [7] If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. [8] By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. [9] As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. [10] If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. [11] These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
