16You did not choose me; I chose you and appointed you to go and bear much fruit, the kind of fruit that endures. And so the Father will give you whatever you ask of him in my name.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.
John 15: 16-17
Questions: How can you use your friendships to build God’s kingdom? How can you be better at applying the gospel and speaking gospel truths in your friendships?
Prayer: Dear God, please help me to be outward looking in my friendships so that I can help to build your kingdom. Please give me boldness to love openly and be welcoming to all those you place in my life. Amen.
