Passage: John 15:1-17
Verse: John 15:16 (NIV)
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
How special is it to know that Jesus chose us first – before we chose Him? He values us. He is confident we will bear fruit, eternal fruit, for His kingdom. Genuine belief in Jesus stems from a love for Him and what He did for us. May we be blessed in a very special way as we love and follow Him. May we be seen as worthy, in the eyes of the Father, as we show others why and how to have a meaningful relationship with the Lord.
