  •          Circle the occurrences of the word ABIDE in this section of Scripture. What parallels are there between a vine and its branches AND between us and the Lord in terms of communion?
  •          What are the results of FAILING to abide (of note developing fellowship with Jesus? (v2, v4, v5c and v6. What are the results of SUCCESSFULLY ABIDING? v 2b, v5, v7, v16.
  •          “True love for God results in love for one another!” Discuss this statement in the light of verses 9-14.
  •          End the meeting by rejoicing over verse 16.

A special thank you to each of you for your time, generosity, care and love.  May you have a wonderful holiday, and may the Lord refresh and strengthen you for the year ahead.  God bless.
