Men seek proof... God knows already...

John 15: 
1    "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
2    "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.

So, it is our responsibility to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit.

In that passage it sounds like God is doing the cultivating, we are to abide.

Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
(Joh 15:3-4)

I laborered more abundantely than them all,  YET NOT I , but the grace of GOD .      Sounds like paul knew DIDNT IT .     PETER DID TOO .

Now by now yowm,  you know what gets said next .     RAISE THOSE HANDS AND PRAISE THE LORD .      And do remember if unable to do that

SIT on that bean bag with arms held onto chair and start a singing praises .

Yes, God helps for those who yield to Him. Let us not jump to vs. 3 & 4 ignoring vs.1 & 2. People usually fall for 'ear tickling' verses ignoring the other verses in the context!

VSS 3&4 are not ear tickling. They re all God's Word. As a matter of fact 1&2 are easier because fruit comes natural when the branch abides. It is the abiding that is the tougher part.
