I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing.

He is the vine, the source of our life. We are the branches, the place where fruit is produced. Jesus said that it is not our activity that produces fruit, it is our relationship with Him. If you will remain steadfastly in fellowship with Jesus, a great harvest will be the natural by-product.
