True Disciples

Herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, so shall ye be my disciples. - John 15:8

"And are those who do not bear much fruit not disciples? They may be, but in a backward and immature stage.  ...There have always been a smaller number of God's people who have sought to serve Him with their whole hearts, whereas the majority have been content with a very small measure of the knowledge of His grace and will....[Those that seek to be His true disciples] - Their cry is to bear as much fruit as they possibly can, as much as their Lord ever can desire or give in them....Let our desire be nothing less than perfect cleansing, unbroken abiding, closest communion, abundant fruitfulness - true branches of the true Vine." - Murry
