15:10 If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.
15:11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
15:12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
15:14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
15:15 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.
15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit--fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
15:17 This is my command: Love each other.
