Disciples bear more and more fruit

Disciples bear more and more fruit. Fruit is the product of life under God's covenant, and so it comes in many shapes and sizes. But we don't make the fruit. God does - but only after pruning us to make us more fruitful. Everyone benefits from fruit, but it is God who ultimately benefits the most, for it is his glory. So all we need to do is cultivate the right conditions for the fruit to grow.

Disciples love one another

Loving God by fearing him

The first mark of a disciple is one who loves Jesus. But to love God as he really is is to fear him. He is a holy and awesome God and we approach him with trembling. But this doesn't push us away from God, rather we are drawn towards him because he is so awesome.
