John 15:9-19 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
9 "As the Father has loved me,1 so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you obey my commands,2 you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.3 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.4 13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.5 14 You are my friends6 if you do what I command.7 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.8 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you9 to go and bear fruit10--fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.11 17 This is my command: Love each other.12

The World Hates the Disciples

18 "If the world hates you,13 keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you14 out of the world. That is why the world hates you.15
