Wanna Be a Friend of His?

June 24, 2021

Wanna be a friend of Christ Jesus?

This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you, says Christ Jesus in John 15:12.

Pretty clear.

But wait! There’s more! —

Make yourselves at home in my love.

If you keep my commands, you’ll remain intimately at home in my love.

That’s what I’ve done—kept my Father’s commands and made myself at home in his love.

I’ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature.

This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you.

This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends.

You are my friends when you do the things I command you.

I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father.

You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil.

As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.

But remember the root command: Love one another.

— That’s John 15:10-17. Again, pretty clear, eh?
