In this teaching, we take another look at what being ON Assignment looks like. This time we look at our God-given Assignments through the lens of John 15:1-5: 

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 bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 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. 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.

Key points: 
  1. The FUNCTION of the VINE [Jesus] is to give life to the branches.
  2. The FUNCTION of the BRANCHES [you and I] is to bear much fruit -- we do that ON our God-given Assignments.
