John 15:4-5 Job

Our Savior declares to His apostles as well as to all engaged in apostolic labors: "Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine; so neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.

John 15:6 Job

Woe to the Christian! Woe, in particular, to the laborer in the vineyard of the Lord, who severs himself from Christ, the Vine, or who is merely attached to Him by a loose external bond! He will be cut off, as a withering branch, and cast into the fire.

2) 1Cor. 12:12-13

1)Would you have the Holy Ghost abide in you, and the love of God poured forth into your hearts, so that from your own abundance the hearts of children may be replenished; would you be so richly endowed with grace and strength, that no one can resist the wisdom of the Holy Spirit speaking through you, - 2) then you must be sound and living members of the body of Christ, that is of His holy Church; for the Spirit of Christ animates the body of Christ and the members thereof, as long as they remain attached, just as my body and its members are animated by my soul.
