“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.”
Fruit that we buy from the produce section at the grocery store often does not last very long. If we leave an orange in the fruit basket for too long, mold begins to appear.
The fruit found through abiding in Christ never decays.
“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
This fruit is imperishable simply because it does not originate with us.
We have no part in this fruit other than our obedience to do whatever He tells us.
Fruit that remains abides forever.
“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.”
Fruit that remains is everlasting.
“Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.”
Fruit that remains will not return void.
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
He promises that when we give out His Word, It will accomplish what He pleases… that is fruit that remains.
We cannot bear fruit without Him.
