"This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. This I command you, that you love one another." John 15:12-17
Thank You for leaving us with these instructions regarding our relationships with one another. Thank You for spending Your time here on earth teaching Your disciples how to live in Your love. Thank You for the book that we have now, Your word, which gives us these instructions.
Lord, it is with humble adoration that I thank You that You call me friend. Thank You that everything the Father told You, You made known to us. Thank You that You chose me and appointed me. I pray that I would abide in You that I may bear fruit and bring glory to Your name.
In Your Name,
