How a Christian lives is very important. A Christian should put himself into the arms of his Bridegroom, Christ, and let Christ produce his fruit through him. Just as a bride cannot produce natural children until she puts herself into the arms of the bridegroom, so a Christian cannot produce real spiritual fruit except he put himself into the hands of Christ.
