"I am the vine and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while ever branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.... If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." (John 15:1,2,5)
We certainly have been enjoying the delicious fruit that we picked from the apple trees. I am reminded in John 15 that I too can bear good fruit, if I remain in Christ. Without fellowship with my Father, I can not bear fruit, and I am like a branch cut off from the vine -lifeless. I pray that I will remain in the LORD and live a godly life, thereby producing good fruit, like the apples we picked!
