The Readings: Acts 10:44-end John 15:9-17

Gospel:  John 15 9 - 17

I have loved you just as My Father has loved Me. Stay in My love.If you obey My teaching, you will live in My love. In this way, I have obeyed My Father’s teaching and live in His love.I have told you these things so My joy may be in you and your joy may be full.The Christian with Other Christians“This is what I tell you to do: Love each other just as I have loved you.No one can have greater love than to give his life for his friends.You are My friends if you do what I tell you.I do not call you servants that I own anymore. A servant does not know what his owner is doing. I call you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from My Father.You have not chosen Me, I have chosen you. I have set you apart for the work of bringing in fruit. Your fruit should last. And whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give it to you.“This is what I tell you to do: Love each other.
