READ THE  SCRIPTURE

John 15: 9-17 (The Message)

 

9-10 “I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands, you’ll remain intimately at home in my love. That’s what I’ve done— kept my Father’s commands and made myself at home in his love.

 

11-15 “I’ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. You are my friends when you do the things I command you. I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father.

 

16 “You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you. 17 “But remember the root command: Love one another.

Amazing Grace

 

Amazing grace! how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost and now am found, was blind, but now I see.

 

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved;

how precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed!

 

Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come;

‘tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.

 

The Lord has promised good to me, his word, my hope secures;                                                                   

he will my shield and portion be as long as life endures.

 

When we’ve been there the thousand years, bright shining as the sun,                                                    

we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we first begun.
