Scripture of the Day - August 5, 2012

John 15:16 I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain.

We each have a purpose in life. Jesus has chosen us for a reason. He has ordained each one of us to bring forth fruit that will last. Now you may wonder what does "bring forth fruit" mean? Basically it means spreading the gospel and doing good. But the clincher is that we must do it so it will last. So the next question is how can we ensure that? The simple answer is to do it in love. Jesus commanded it...17  These things I command you, that ye love one another. You see, the world hates but a true Christian will love. The world will hate you for what you represent but you must love anyway. You must love your enemies and pray for them who persecute you.  You must not retaliate with the hatred of this world but cover it in love. That is the only fruit that will last...all things of this world will burn up one day but love will last forever.
