Instead of a doctor’s office, it is our own conscious saying, “I’m sorry, self, you have messed up too many times and lost your appointment. You have missed your calling. You have been dis-appointed.”
In John 15:16, Jesus tells the disciples that He chose and appointed them to bear fruit that remains. The Greek definition of the word appoint in this scripture is “to place.” Unlike my decorating style, when the Lord places something, he does not intend on changing it the next day. He is resolute in his decisions. Just like the disciples, the Lord has chosen us to bear fruit that remains, nothing we do is going to make Him remove that appointment from our lives.
Of course, some may wonder, "How do I bear the kind of fruit that remains?" The answer is found in the very next verse: “These things I command you, that you love one another.” (John 15:17 NKJV)
So the next time we feel like we have failed our test or missed our calling, we can take comfort in the knowledge that we will never run out of opportunities to show love to someone. Our next appointment may just be right around the corner.
