In the Gospel according to Saint John we find Jesus speaking of the fruits that we must bear while we are in His ways. That is why it is good that when we read the Bible we pay close attention, because that way we can understand well what He is trying to teach us.
Jesus says that He is the true vine and that if we are in His paths, we must bear good fruit.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
These fruits of which Jesus speaks, is about what we do in our walk, fruits of repentance, this is not about that you are only within His ways and everything has ended there, but that we will have struggle day after day, and these struggles are with spirits and powers sent by the evil one.
That is why we must always be asking God for His mercy to accompany us and strengthen us every day, since with our own strength we cannot.
If we have strength and wisdom from God, then we can work to bear fruit in the ways of our Lord Jesus.
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
If you plant a tree and expect fruit from it, and waiting to spend the indicated time for that tree to have already borne fruit, it does not bear fruit, then that tree is cut. This happens with those people that God calls to bear fruit and remain stagnant, so these people lose everything because they did not give any kind of fruit being in the ways of God.
As servants of Christ it is our commitment to bear fruits of repentance and fruits of preaching His Holy Word, so that others may hear from God.
