John 15:16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
How incredible is it to know that you were chosen for greatness? You were chosen by the Maker of the Stars, to go into the world and produce “lasting fruit”.. spiritual fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. However, Jesus only gives us this directive: Love one another. Why, then, is this such a difficult task? The answer is sin. Sin is selfish, prideful, inconsiderate, and every other feeling that keeps us from our mission: The Great Commission.
Seek to live each day for your Savior, humbling yourself before others, and giving love. Stand up and get moving, for you have a divine appointment ~ with Jesus! Don't allow sin to get in the way of God's plan for you. Instead, seek Him passionately, and ask Him to show His love through you. Rest assured, He is faithful to His faithful. If you earnestly seek these things in you heart, God will hear you, and grant your request!
