What are the fruits of abiding? How is fruit cultivated in your life?
Jesus said, “I am the true vine and my Father is the Vinedresser. Every branch that bears fruit, He prunes, that it may bear more fruit...I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, bears much fruit.” Both Jesus and the Father are closely involved with each other in your growth and fruitfulness.
Abiding is your total, joyful dependence upon what the Father and Jesus are doing together in you. They are working in you to elevate your identity in the image and likeness of God.
Abiding in God produces the fruit of relationship, fellowship, trust and faith. There’s no striving for a branch that’s living connected to the vine. There’s a natural flow of life and the outcome is the fruit!
