John 15:9

Abide (meinate). Constative first aorist active imperative of menw, summing up the whole. In my love (en th agaph th emh). Subjunctive possessive pronoun, "in the love that I have for you." Our love for Christ is the result of Christ's love for us and is grounded at bottom in the Father's love for the world ( Matthew 3:16 ). John has emo 37 times and always in the words of Jesus (Bernard). But he uses mou also (verse Matthew 10 ).
