In John 15, Jesus describes himself as the “True Vine.” The purpose of a vine is to take hold and wrap whatever it comes in contact with. If He is the true vine, then He will wrap us and hold us tightly when we abide in Him.
"I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser." John 15:1 (ESV)
"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:4-5 (ESV)
