[For the Leader. On the gittit. By Asaf:]
Sing for joy to God our strength!
Shout to the God of Ya`akov!
Start the music! Beat the drum!
Play the sweet lyre and the lute!
Sound the shofar at Rosh-Hodesh
and at full moon for the pilgrim feast,
because this is a law for Isra’el,
a ruling of the God of Ya`akov.

Bearing fruit brings glory to God (John 15:8). It requires obedience and prayer to remain connected to the vine (John 15:7,10). The love which unites the Father and Son alsu unites us with the vine. Yeshua concludes, “I have said this to you so that my joy may be in you, and your joy be complete” (John 15:11).
