My Father is honored by this, that you bear much fruit and show that you are my disciples.—John 15:8 NET
What a possibility, what an inspiration, that we can enhance the glory of “our Father”! Our hearts leap at the thought.
How can this be done? By bearing “leaves,” a profession of love for Him? No. By bearing some fruit? No. “That ye bear much fruit.” In the abundance of the yield is the joy, the glory of the husbandman. We should, therefore, aim to be extraordinary, “hundred–fold” Christians, satisfied with none but the largest yield. Our lives should be packed with good deeds. Then at harvest time we can say, “Father, I have glorified Thee on the earth!” — W. Jennings.
