Chosen

John 15

16 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.  -kjv

16 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.  -niv

16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you. I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you. -hcsb

Observations and comments:

  1. God/Jesus has chosen us by implication from this verse. These words were spoken by Jesus to his disciples after he washed their feet and after he dismissed Judas Iscariot.
  2. This verse supports the doctrine of election.

  1. Besides the original 12 could these scripture passages mean the same for us. I think so.
