Love and Fruitfulness

What does a fruitful life look like? Jesus spoke much about fruitfulness. Yet, we tend to speak very little about fruitfulness. Yet can we be faithful without being fruitful? Can we love God and our neighbor by only being faithful?

The truth of the matter is, as we will see in this text: If you want to be faithful, you have to be fruitful. And this is not a burden, for we were created to live fruitful lives.
