This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

– John 15:8 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Jesus tells us that the way that we glorify the Father is to bear much fruit. The interesting thing is that earlier in this passage Jesus tells us that we can’t bear fruit on our own; we must abide in Him. So what does it mean to abide? It seems that a reaction is started when we earnestly seek after God in His Word and prayer. The attributes of Christ begin to appear in our lives. This is to the Father’s glory and it becomes a display of our relationship to God.
