How can a person have the fruit of the Spirit without proof that The Vine who produces the fruit dwells in them?
"I am the Vine" in John 15:1 and promised when He "indwells" one they receive "POWER" (Acts 1:8) from His baptism (Acts 1:5) along with "Spiritual gifts" (I Cor 12:7-10) and "Signs following" (Mark 16:17-18) which is the "PROOF" (II Timothy 4:5) that "The Vine" indwells one.
How can a person produce "the fruit" without "The Vine" indwelling them?

Only when Jesus Christ is within them and they give their lives to serve him will a person eventually have the fruits of the spirit. Over time, often a lifetime, we should do our best to develop these. Here's the list. If we have these, it's evidence that the Holy Spirit is working through us. Here's a link that will show you what they are.

Fruit is proof that the vine lives.

Oh in lots of ways, but if you don't already know then there's no chance I'm going to tell you.

Even the Bible tells us to examine ourselves. What we produce is evidence of what is in us. Do we love truth? Are we more than willing to let God's truth correct us? Do we love righteousness? Can we discern what is of God, and what is not of Him? Does evil and rebellion against God not sit well in our hearts?
All things good are of the Spirit of God. And while some people think God is love, without Righteousness and Truth -- they are way off base -- because God is all of this combined -- not one part of His nature being separated from the other ..... God is the Source of Goodness, Truth, Love, Life and Righteousness -- if we love all of those things, and that's what we live for and that's what our souls love, then we know we are His children. We are His offspring, really the produce of His Spirit - when we are born again.
