God has Chosen me to be the love of his life and to bring followers in to his kingdom so that we all can be saved. No hate in our hearts only but love and saviors in the father and son of the holy name

 

D. Francis's comment on 2014-01-27 05:06:42:

We are not worthy for chosen by God, why because by birth we are all sinners, there is no goodness in us....for example, if we want to buy anything for us we will select, elect and chose good thing and buy..... there is no any good thing in us but god has chosen us, this is Gods Love towards us.

 

Jim Williams's comment on 2013-11-04 07:07:06:

What comfort to know it is not "God's will that any should perish, but all should come to repentance"; yet what a challenge it is to know He has given the responsibility to us to take the WORD and good new to them; --- now pray about it and God will give us His harvest, which brings joy!

 

Veekee's comment on 2013-10-25 15:36:17:

I think this verse is talking about evangelism. Goin out 2 win souls for the kingdom and causing them to remain. By doing so,whatsoever we ask of the father shall be given us.

 

Susan Ignacio-John's comment on 2013-07-01 09:55:05:

I take the word of God as it reads, If God say He chooses us, that's what He means. There is no explanation on that. What we cannot understand, does not make the Word void, nor change the direct words of God.

 

Bob's comment on 2013-06-01 01:44:17:

John 15:16 is really saying, pray only to the father through his only begotton son and the father will give.no other can help like so called saints they are holy people but not saviours.

 

Juanita Carter's comment on 2012-04-30 21:36:19:

Does this mean we are predestined to be saved?

 

Pat's comment on 2011-06-07 15:07:16:

Is John 15:16 saying that Jesus has already chosen those who will be saved?
