Love One Another

Have and keep Jesus’ Commandments

God = gardener, disciplines us

Jesus = the true vine

Every branch that remains in the vine → bears fruit

Every branch that does not remain → is burned

Do works and believe in Jesus’ works for us

 1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.



 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

cut off


 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.


 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

remain in Jesus

 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

branch, fruit

 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

branch, burned

We remains in Jesus

Jesus’ words remain in us

Whatever you ask that are in Jesus, will be given →

Jesus’ disciples → bearing much fruit → glorifies God

 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

remain, ask, will be done

 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

fruit, disciples, God’s glory

 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

Jesus’ joy in us

Jesus’ commandment

Love each other with a great love for friends,

Then we are Jesus’ friends

Because Jesus has chosen us and appointed us,

we will receive whatever we ask in Jesus’ name

 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

love each other

 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

great love

 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

Jesus’ friend

 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

made know to us

 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

chose, appointed,

to go and bear fruit

 17These things I command you, that ye love one another.

love each other

We are sanctified by Jesus – we are not of the world

We must expect neither reward nor recognition from the world

 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

the world hate

 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

we are not of the world

 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

we will be persecuted

 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Jesus’ name sake

Not wearing wedding clothes

Not believing Jesus’ works

 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.


 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

hate Jesus and God

 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

Jesus’ works

 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

hate Jesus without a cause

We must testify about Jesus

what Jesus has done

how Jesus loved us

 26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

testify about Jesus

 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.


Fruit for others

Salt and Light

 13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

 14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

 15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

God’s Love

Jesus’ Love

Our Love

 35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

 1Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

 3Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

 4He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
