Bible: John 15:9-17
15:9 “Just as the Father has loved me, I have also loved you; remain 1 in my love. 15:10 If you obey 2 my commandments, you will remain 3 in my love, just as I have obeyed 4 my Father’s commandments and remain 5 in his love. 15:11 I have told you these things 6 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. 7 15:13 No one has greater love than this – that one lays down his life 8 for his friends. 15:14 You are my friends 9 if you do what I command you. 15:15 I no longer call you slaves, 10 because the slave does not understand 11 what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, because I have revealed to you everything 12 I heard 13 from my Father. 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you 14 and appointed you to go and bear 15 fruit, fruit that remains, 16 so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. 15:17 This 17 I command you – to love one another.
