Easter

"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."
(John 15:12)

Sixth Sunday of Easter

Love and Joy Perfected

John 15:9 As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love.
John 15:10 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.
John 15:11 I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.
John 15:12 "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."
John 15:13 No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends.
John 15:14 You are my friends if you do what I command you.
John 15:15 I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father.
John 15:16 You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name.
John 15:17 I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another.

NSRV & Believer's Study Bible (BSB) Notes

[John 15:9] (vv. 9, 10) It is Christ who first loved us (1 John 4:9, 19), and now our love for Him begins to operate by our obedience to His commandments. Love is the basis of obedience, and obedience demonstrates love. This is a concrete example of how one remains in His love.
