Jesus says, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become My disciples. As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. I have said these things to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.” John 15:7-11
Jesus victorious overcomes every evil movement, sickness, disease, or choice to deny His Godly Presence. He is the Overcomer and you are His believing becomer. He says, “… bear much fruit and become My disciple.” Now He is speaking to His disciples so why would He use the word become? Because all disciples are becoming perfected, Christ-like, over a lifetime. (This is sanctification.)
We, His disciples, are becoming ‘fruit’ perfected– more loving, genuinely joy-filled, peace givers, extremely patient, beautifully kind, so generous, more faithful than a spouse, very gentle in all things, and having heightened self-control– these are our fruit bearing qualities. This is who we are as His Holy Spirit filled, led, and infused disciples! By the Power of the Holy Spirit other persons, of any age, can learn these fruits from your Christian living.
To live Christ-like is to be very immersed in your New Testament Scriptures each day, every day– His words abide in you. Then ask for whatever you wish as you have aligned yourself with Christ’s will for fruit bearing. All in all, Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord’s Love on the Cross is the main thing. Abide in Christ your Savior’s loving Heart as a believing becomer and all these fruits shall be added unto your friends, family, and co-workers.
