Are You Bearing Fruit?

Bearing fruit is central to redemption and salvation. Jesus said, "I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit,"vs. 16. In 15:2, He said, "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away," is cast into to fire and burned up, vs. 6. The issue of bearing fruit, therefore, is not optional; it is the evidence and the product of being in Christ, the vine. Does this mean that a person can be "in Christ," be saved, and later be cut off because he does not bear fruit, be lost? What is the fruit that we are to bear? How can I bear fruit for Christ?
