Fruit

A patio tomato plant.


Six cherry tomatoes, sprouting and ripening.

Slowly, one at a time turning bright red.

Slowly, one at a time.

Not a sudden harvest, but gradually, as the roots dig deep.

"I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit . . ."
      ~ John 15:5a

The evidence of faith is fruit.

Not a sudden harvest, but gradually, as the roots dig deep.
As we cling to the Vine.
As we fight the flesh.

Slowly, in His power.

". . . for without Me you can do nothing."
      ~ John 15:5b
