John 15:12-17 NRS

12 "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
13 No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends.
14 You are my friends if you do what I command you.
15 I do not call you servants a any longer, because the servant b does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father.
