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.
And Father God says to you today,
‘I chose you long before the foundation of the world.
I chose you to be my child, to walk and talk with me.
I knew you before your mother first set her eyes on you.
I chose you and set you apart for “such a time as this”.
I chose you to be my own, and to be the apple of my eye.
I chose you to be mine, completely and totally mine.
I CHOSE YOU.’
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
