John 15:8 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "Herein is my Father glorified," (en touto edoksasthe ho pater mou) "By this is my Father glorified," praised, or exalted by you all, in and through your holy lives and obedient service to me, through the church, Eph 3:21.
2) "That ye bear much fruit;” (hina karpon polun pherete) "In order that you all bear much fruit," not simply bear fruit, but much fruit; For every true branch, good heart-connected branch or good tree, will bring forth good fruit, Mat 7:17-20. The fruit is evidence of vital union with the vine.
3) "So shall ye be my disciples." (kai genesesthe emoi mathetai) "And you all will be recognized as my disciples," and receive not a mere entrance into eternal glory, but an abundant entrance," with fruit of labor acknowledged, by rewards for service, See 2Pe 1:4-11; Even as ruler over many things, Mat 25:31; 2Ti 4:7-8.
