JOHN 15:1 I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.
We not only have Jesus Himself.
We have the Father, as the Vinedresser, watching over our growth and fruit-bearing.
It is NOT left to our faith.
God Himself will see to it that the branch is what it should be.
He will enable us to bring forth just the fruit we were appointed to bear.
