S06 E03: I Choose You

About this episode

In this episode we talk about the beautiful words of Jesus in John 15:16 where he tells us that He has chosen us and that his desire is that we bear fruit that will last. It’s the deepest desires of every heart to be known, to be chosen, and to belong, but often we don’t believe the truth of our belovedness in the core of our being. We chat about the difference between fruit that lasts and success and how being rooted deeply in Jesus is essential for good fruit in our life.

Quote to Ponder

There is a place for everyone - a unique, special place. Once we deeply trust that we ourselves are precious in God’s eyes, we are able to recognize the preciousness of others and their unique places in God’s heart.
— Henri Nouwen

Scripture for Lectio Divina

You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last.
