Blessings Above & Beyond


In John 15:16, Jesus said: "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, He may give it you."

Here Jesus is telling His disciples that He chose them specifically, and that He chose them for a purpose - to bear fruit. What a joy it is to experience the blessing of fruitfulness in our lives. But with the blessing comes responsibility. In Ephesians 4:1, Paul said, "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called." I can't think of a better way to walk worthy of our calling than to demonstrate fruitfulness in our walk.
