At Home in His Love...

Simon Seow
8 This is to my Fathers glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves
to be my disciples.

9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my
love.

10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have


kept my Fathers commands and remain in his love.

11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may
be complete.

12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.


13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down ones life for ones
friends.

14 You are my friends if you do what I command.

15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his
masters business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that
I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that
you might go and bear fruitfruit that will lastand so that whatever
you ask in my name the Father will give you.

17 This is my command: Love each other.
