John 15:9-17 - Christlike Love

9 Even as the Father loved Me, I also loved you; abide in My love. 10 If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love.

11 These things have I spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. 12 This is My commandment, that ye love one another, even as I loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his soul for his friends. 14 Ye are My friends, if ye do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you slaves; because the slave knows not what his lord is doing; but I have called you friends, because all things which I heard from My Father I made known to you. 16 Ye did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should abide; that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My name, He may give it you. 17 These things I command you, that ye may love one another.
