David denHartog remembers the joy that farmers in Iowa had as they brought in the harvest each year. Spiritually, too, we share in the joy of the harvest when someone comes to know Christ, or we know we have had a part in that process. John 15:1-17 speaks about the joy and fruit and abiding in Jesus. What is the fruit? How do we bear fruit? What is the role of the Father to us? What is our role in relationship to the Savior?
