This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
God is glorified when our lives demonstrate that we are abiding in him, bearing the fruit of our being united with Christ. 2 Thessalonians 1:11–12 says, “With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
