I love John Wesley’s commentary on this verse in the Gospel of John:
You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you. (John 15:16 AMP)
From John Wesley’s Notes On The Bible:
- I have chosen and appointed you—for this end, that ye may go and convert sinners.
- That your fruit may be lasting—that the fruit of your labors may remain to the end of the world; yea, to eternity.
- That whatsoever you ask—the consequence of your going and bearing fruit will be, that all your prayers will be heard.
Leading others to an eternity with Jesus, bearing fruit that lasts forever, and having complete union with Christ in prayer. Wow! What amazing privileges followers of Jesus can have!
