Jesus continued to speak to the eleven honorable disciples.
“If you keep my commandments you will live in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and am surrounded by His love.
I have told you these things so that you can have joy.
I command you to love each other as I have loved you.
There is no greater love than a man who would give his life for his friends. You are my friends if you keep my commandments.
From now on I don’t call you ‘servants’, but ‘friends’. The servant doesn’t know his Lord’s plans, but you know everything that I have learned from my Father.
