But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end everlasting life.
As the glory of a healthy apple tree is its fruit, so the glory of a genuine Christian is his usefulness. He does not merely blossom out with a good profession; he bears fruit with all his might and main. There is not a sapless twig or a barren bough on the whole tree which is planted by the rivers of grace but yieldeth its fruit every month.
(T. L. Cuyler.)
