Do What?

I couldn't help but chuckle when I noticed that a certain 5 year old scrambled up the message I have displayed in the living room.

"You want me to do what?!?"

"Oh. That makes a bit more sense."  

"I am the true vine,and my Father is the gardener.
He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,
while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that
it will be even more fruitful. 
You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.
Remain in me, and I will remain in you.
No branch can bear fruit by itself;
it must remain in the vine.
Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
I am the vine; you are the branches.
If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit;
apart from me you can do nothing.
If anyone does not remain in me,
he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers;
such branches are picked up, 
thrown into the fire and burned. 
If you remain in me and my words remain in you,
ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
This is to my Father's glory,
that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples."
John 15:1-8

Make sure you are connected to the Vine so you too can "arberftiu"!

Oh. Wait.

Bear fruit... that will last.
