A Grapevine in England is 1,000 Years Old

Jesus reminds them that apart from Him, they will not have life.

In Hampton Court near London, there is a grapevine which is about 1,000 years old. This grapevine has one root which is at least 0.6m thick, and some of the branches are 60m long. Despite its age the vine produces several tons of grapes each year.

Although some of the smaller branches are 60m from the main stem, they still bear the sweet and delicious fruit because they are connected to the vine.

Life flows from that single root and through out the vine bringing nourishment and strength to each of the branches.

From a sermon by Christian Cheong, The Yield of Your Life, 10/27/2009
