I...appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain.
Jesus reveals to us things we can never know any other way, and He enables us to do things we could never do by any other source of power. Jesus teaches us not only God's commandments and how to apply them on this earth, but He empowers us to keep and to do God's commandments... On what basis do we bear eternal fruit? On the basis of keeping His Commandments and by loving one another as we abide in His love.
