Jesus referring to God the Father as “My Father”, represents His humility to honor and operate inside the Plan of God even though He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit.
PHERETE - Present, Active, Subjunctive.The Customary Present Tense is “stative” and describes ongoing action, “keep on bearing much fruit”.
By being Occupied with Christ you produce Divine Good, with the further result of becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ; all of which has the purpose of glorifying God the Father.
The Subjunctive Mood supports the Purpose Clause for glorifying the Father by fruit production, and now discipleship, having emphasis on volitional responsibility.
A student learns in order to apply what he has learned, and that’s what a disciple is, one who has learned B.D. and is applying it to his life.
John 15:8, “In the realm of this, (Divine Good Production), My Father is glorified that you all keep on bearing much fruit and you all become My disciples.”
11) Divine Good is only possible when we are Occupied with Jesus Christ. Our prayers are a reflection of that as we invoke God to lead us in D.G.P. with the purpose that the Father is glorified.
