Faith Building Fridays: Fruit

You didn’t choose me.
I chose you.
I appointed you to [write] and
produce fruit that will last.
-John 15:16, NLT

God has chosen you and me to write. He has appointed us to produce fruit that will last. What a glorious adventure is ours! He sees and knows and understands, even if nobody else does. Let’s write, dear scribe. We’re in the business of growing fruit!

Dear God, thank You for choosing me. Thank You for appointing me to a task that brings glory to Your name. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
