Pray that the saints would learn to effectively nourish the new believers that they may become remaining fruit (John 15:16 and note 163; 21:15 and note 154; 1 Thes. 2:7; Hymns, #811, ss. 1, 6-7 and chorus).
John 15:16—You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and I set you that you should go forth and bear fruit and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He may give you.
John 21:15—Then when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these? He said to Him, Yes, Lord, You know that I love You. He said to him, Feed My lambs.
1 Thes. 2:7—But we were gentle in your midst, as a nursing mother would cherish her own children.
