Unless a tree has borne blossoms in spring, you will vainly look for fruit on it in autumn.     

Walter Scott

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. John 15:4-5
