“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.”
Think about verse 9: “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.”
- How did God love Jesus? How will Jesus then love us? How does that relate to the story of the rich young ruler?
- What does it mean to you that Jesus calls you friend and invites you to call Him the same?
Take some time this week to memorize Verse 9: “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.”
