“You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you” (John 15:16).
Being a chosen people doesn’t mean we become frozen into a state of blissful leisure. Ours is an appointed task, to be obediently carried out. The fruit-bearing mission to which we have been called is fulfilled not by sequestering ourselves in upper rooms, mountaintops, or sanctuaries but, rather, in our going. What a great privilege we have been afforded—chosen, appointed, and sent to bear his fruit into the world.
