If any one continues not in me he is cast without as a branch, and is withered; and they collect them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If you continue in me, and my words continue in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it shall be [given] you. By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and be my disciples.

I have spoken these things to you that my joy may be in you, and your joy be completed. This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No man has greater love than this, that one should give his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you; I no longer call you servants, for the servant knows not what his Lord does; but I have called you friends: for all things which I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and appointed you to go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should continue, that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. These things I charge you, that you love one another. If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before you. If you were of this world, the world would be a friend to its own; but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word which I said to you, a servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my word, they will also keep yours. But all these things they will do to you, on my account, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; but now they have no pretext for their sin.
