To be victorious in our struggle against sin our focus must be on our savior Jesus Christ. Christ is pictured as the vine. We as the branches. The branches cannot bear fruit of themselves unless they abide in the vine. The fruit that Christian''s are expected to bear can only be done by abiding in the vine of Christ. Our Father is glorified as we bear fruit and strive to be His disciples.
