“I am the Vine, and you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in Him, He will bear much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”
“The whole idea of fruit is that fruit comes from something that is alive. Human offspring come as a result of a man and woman loving each other. Spiritual fruit is the offspring of loving, intimate encounters with Jesus.”
