There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.



John 15:9-17

I have loved you even as the Father has loved me.

Remain in my love.

When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love,

just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.

I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy.

Yes, your joy will overflow!

This is my commandment:

Love each other in the same way I have loved you.

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

You are my friends if you do what I command.

I no longer call you slaves,

because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves.

Now you are my friends,

since I have told you everything the Father told me.

You didn’t choose me.

I chose you.

I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit,

so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.

This is my command: Love each other.
