Closing thought: Every believer should be capable of leading others to Christ or at least stimulating an unbeliever’s interest in knowing God. The blessings of bearing fruit is the result of yielding to the Holy Spirit in discerning the spiritual needs of those you interact with and the personal discipline to learn how to effectively witness to others.  The eternal life of those we know may be affected on our ability to witness to them. Proverbs 11:30 says, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”
