John 15:9-17 New International Version

9  "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10  If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commands and remain in his love. 11  I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12  My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13  Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends. 14  You are my friends if you do what I command. 15  I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit-fruit that will last-and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17  This is my command: Love each other.
