John 15:5-14 NLT

5 "Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
6 Anyone who parts from me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned.
7 But if you stay joined to me and my words remain in you, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted!
8 My true disciples produce much fruit. This brings great glory to my Father."
9 "I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.
10 When you obey me, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father and remain in his love.
11 I have told you this so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!
12 I command you to love each other in the same way that I love you.
13 And here is how to measure it -- the greatest love is shown when people lay down their lives for their friends.
14 You are my friends if you obey me.
