The fruit of Ras speaks of the empowerment of sonship, both male and female. It testifies of the Good Shepherd, taking responsibility, being a good example, exacting his anointing in leadership and righteousness (St. John 10:11-18)

As sons, we are empowered to continue on in faith, righteous acts and leadership as burden-removers and yoke-destroyers. (St. Matthew 5: 13-16, Isaiah 10:27)
