Bible: John 15:5-17
15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains 1 in me – and I in him – bears 2 much fruit, 3 because apart from me you can accomplish 4 nothing. 15:6 If anyone does not remain 5 in me, he is thrown out like a branch, and dries up; and such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, 6 and are burned up. 7 15:7 If you remain 8 in me and my words remain 9 in you, ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you. 10 15:8 My Father is honored 11 by this, that 12 you bear 13 much fruit and show that you are 14 my disciples.
15:9 “Just as the Father has loved me, I have also loved you; remain 15 in my love. 15:10 If you obey 16 my commandments, you will remain 17 in my love, just as I have obeyed 18 my Father’s commandments and remain 19 in his love. 15:11 I have told you these things 20 so that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete. 15:12 My commandment is this – to love one another just as I have loved you. 21 15:13 No one has greater love than this – that one lays down his life 22 for his friends. 15:14 You are my friends 23 if you do what I command you. 15:15 I no longer call you slaves, 24 because the slave does not understand 25 what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, because I have revealed to you everything 26 I heard 27 from my Father. 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you 28 and appointed you to go and bear 29 fruit, fruit that remains, 30 so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. 15:17 This 31 I command you – to love one another.
