Fruit

Just as we are the branches and Christ is the vine, just as the branches bear fruit, so we too bear fruit.  Our job is not to be the vine, but to be the branch that bears fruit.

When we first get saved, we are like the branch that is grafted into the vine.  There is a period of time, a period of healing, when the branch becomes strong.  After the healing process, the branch and the vine look like they are one. The graft is no longer obvious to the casual observer.

The job of the branch afterwards is to produce fruit in season to the glory of God.  Jesus told us that we are to bear much fruit, and that would bring him glory.
