Bring forth fruit answerable to your state. At one time, fruits worthy of repentance were the fruits called for, but now you are to bring forth fruits worthy of assurance, victory, and joy in the Holy Ghost. It is true, God had some little praise from you when you were babes, but now he expects much more; that you bring forth much fruit and be filled with it, that you be strong in faith, that you abound in love, that you be filled with all wisdom and knowledge, to walk worthy of God and to do all to his glory.
