John "You have not chosen me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed you, that you should go and should bring forth fruit; and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
John American Standard Bible (NASB) 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.
John the quote I opened the bible on in the chapel after Dad's remembrance service at the Hospice. I had pruned Dad's grapevine and was worried I had done it wrong. Reading this made me feel a lot happier!
