“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” [John 15:4-5]
Are we rooted deep within the good soil? It is easy to spring up from the shallow earth and give the appearance of abundance. However, this is the life that quickly withers when the heat is turned up. As those who proclaim to abide in the vine, we are not simply to look good from the outside. We are to produce and provide nourishment for those around us. In other words, He expects that the branches bring forth Fruit.
Dex the Nerd Who Loves Jesus again teams up with producer Praise to create a record that challenges listeners at the same level with which it slaps. The energy and lyricism are turned up and the message goes far beyond the two-and-a-half-minute run time of the track. After all, hearts and lives are at stake.

“Let’s produce Fruit for the Kingdom,” exclaims Dex when talking about the driving force behind the record. It is no longer a matter of simply looking the part, merely existing within the Christian culture, we all need to be displaying to the world a better way of living. When we are receiving our strength from the Living God, our Fruit is able to produce “a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown” into us. This is the word that we have been given. Why not fulfill that potential?
