“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.”
The believer is instructed in scriptures to be a fruit bearing branch of the vine, a demand that is essential for his continuous existence Jn. 15:1-2. We have said that fruit bearing means winning the unsaved to Christ Mk. 16:15-16. But the scriptures did not stop at only bearing fruit, it goes further to instruct that our fruits must abide for our efforts not to be wasted Jn. 15:16. If our fruits or souls won for Christ will abide in God, we must get them into church and make them to remain Heb. 10:25.
