”You didn’t choose Me,” Jesus said, “I chose you! I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit!” (See John 15:16)

So, if Jesus chose you, you will produce the fruits of a loving, joyful, tenderhearted, merciful, kind, humble, faithful, gentle, self-controlled, and patient person, that will last! You will make allowance for other people’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you! (See Colossians 3:12-14, Galatians 5:22-23)

If Jesus does not choose you, then even if you consider yourself to be a Christian, you will not be able to walk in the above-mentioned fruits of the Holy Spirit! You may try, but it will never last, because your true sinful nature will always be exposed!
