Advent Meditation: You did not choose me, but I chose you

News St Martin – Talking Points

Monday 2 December 2013

You did not choose me, but I chose you.

John 15.16

This verse from John’s gospel speaks to me of warmth, care and consistency. When we experience loss, crises, feelings of loneliness and exile, this passage can remind us that we have someone we can truly rely on as a fixed point in our lives. 


There are times when we’ve been far off, have felt exiled, afraid and alone. For all of us there are times when we have felt in need. Do you find this verse helpful as a reminder that God is there for you? 


Thank you God for your love and care shown to us in our daily lives. Let those who are persecuted and exiled know your love and be drawn to you. Amen.
