You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
Jesus spoke these words to His disciples who were already believers and, they were chosen and appointed to produce good and long lasting fruit. The disciples followed and abided in Him.
Have you ever wondered how you got here? You follow Jesus and abide in Him and here you are chosen to bear fruit that would remain.
When we are living in spirit and truth we not only are fruitful to His praise and glory but also guided by His Holy Spirit to pray into His will and character.
Let’s live our lives fruitful for His kingdom because He chose you and me.
