Rev. David Andrus, pastor of Abiding Savior Lutheran Church in St. Louis and Not-Alone.net Ministries, joins host Rev. AJ Espinosa to study John 15. Our Lord Jesus says that it’s time to go out and face the darkness, so He makes His closing remarks. John chapter 15 begins with the final symbolic “I am the” statement: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.” This recalls our Lord’s very first miraculous sign of turning water into wine. The message is clear: even though He and the disciples are about to face shame and anguish, their sorrow will be turned to joy, like the overflowing wine at the wedding in Galilee. Like a wedding, they will have joy because of the love they have for each other. The resurrection will bring us such transforming joy that we will forget all about the pains and discomforts of this life, like a mother holding her baby for the first time. For now, God “cleans up” the prideful tangles of our hearts as He prunes us to produce fruit of humble and loving service. We are both Jesus’s branches and Jesus’s friends, and with Him we are never alone.
