12 This is My commandment, that you love one another
as I have loved you.
13 Greater love has no one than this,
than to lay down one's life for his friends.
14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
15 No longer do I call you servants,
for a servant does not know what his master is doing;
but I have called you friends,
for all things that I heard from My Father
I have made known to you.
16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you
and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit,
and that your fruit should remain,
that whatever you ask the Father in My name
He may give you. 17 These things I command you,
that you love one another.
