The Gift of Fruitfulness


I love this gift. Fruitfulness is an abundance of the Holy Spirit at work in our lives. It produces many gifts; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control to be exact. It is the gift that keeps on giving, day in and day out. Fruitfulness is not something we can obtain ourselves, it comes from the Holy Spirit and staying attached to the vine. As long as we stay attached to the vine fruit will be produced, which means more fruit to be given.

"Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful apart from me. Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:4-5
