The Holy Gospel According to John    15: 9-17

15:9 As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Abide in my love.
15:10 If you keep my precepts, you shall abide in my love, just as I also have kept my Father’s precepts and I abide in his love.
15:11 These things I have spoken to you, so that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be fulfilled.
15:12 This is my precept: that you love one another, just as I have loved you.
15:13 No one has a greater love than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.
15:14 You are my friends, if you do what I instruct you.
15:15 I will no longer call you servants, for the servant does not know what his Lord is doing. But I have called you friends, because everything whatsoever that I have heard from my Father, I have made known to you.
15:16 You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you. And I have appointed you, so that you may go forth and bear fruit, and so that your fruit may last. Then whatever you have asked of the Father in my name, he shall give to you.
15:17 This I command you: that you love one another.
