For
Romans 6:8-12
8
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
9
For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.
10
The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
11
In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
Ephesians 2:5
made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions-- it is by grace you have been saved.
Ephesians 2:6
And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,
Philippians 3:10
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,
Philippians 3:11
and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
planted
Psalm 92:13
planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God.
Isaiah 5:2
He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit.
Jeremiah 2:21
I had planted you like a choice vine of sound and reliable stock. How then did you turn against me into a corrupt, wild vine?
Matthew 15:13
He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.
John 12:24
I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
John 15:1-8
1
"I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
2
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.
3
You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.
4
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.
5
"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.
6
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.
7
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.
8
This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
