Matthew 7:15-20; Galatians 5:22-23; John 15:1-8
As the fruit tree produces fruit, the Spirit of God produces good fruit in the life of a believer. Jesus said, "I am the vine. You are the branches. If you stay in Me, and I in you, you will bear much fruit." God's Holy Spirit lives and works inside our hearts. The fruit He produces in us is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control in our lives. If the branches of the tree do not bear fruit, they are cut down. They die and are burned. The followers of Jesus are to produce much fruit. This glorifies and honors God, our Heavenly Father.
