John 15:3 You are already made clean by the word which I have spoken to you.

John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
John 15:17 This I command you, to love one another.
John 15:18 "If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
John 15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
John 15:20 Remember the word that I said to you, 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, they will keep yours also.
John 15:21 But all this they will do to you on my account, because they do not know him who sent me.
John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.

John 15:25 It is to fulfil the word that is written in their law, 'They hated me without a cause.'
John 15:26 But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me;
John 15:27 and you also are witnesses, because you have been with me from the beginning.

Jesus loved us enough to lay down His own life for us, He calls us Friend !
One of my Favorites.

I would gladly sacrifice anything for my friends, even our friendship, if only to help them... I have friends who need to understand this is why i do what i do, not for my sake but for theirs

This verse tells us how we should love and how much Jesus Christ loves us.

ahhh i loveeee thiis!!

John 15:13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

I wrote this verse the first time when I was 13, not ever having read the Bible... God had put his word in my heart... What I wrote was, "There is no greater love than the love of the man who would lay down his life for his friend." I still remember what I wrote that day, nearly 40 years later.

"Nobody but Jesus!!!!**

"What does the Bible say about loneliness?"

Answer: Being alone and being lonely are two different things. One can be alone without being lonely, and one can be lonely in a crowded room. Loneliness is, therefore, a state of mind, an emotion brought on by feelings of separation from other human beings. The sense of isolation is very deeply felt by those who are lonely. The Hebrew word translated “desolate” or “lonely” in the Old Testament means “one alone, only; one who is solitary, forsaken, wretched.” There is no deeper sadness that ever comes over the mind than the idea that we are alone in the world, that we do not have a friend, that no one cares for us, that no one is concerned about anything that might happen to us, that no one would care if we were to die or shed a tear over our grave.

No one felt loneliness more keenly than David. In a series of earnest, heart-felt appeals to God, David cried out in his loneliness and despair. His own son was risen up against him, the men of Israel went after him, and he was forced to flee from the city, and leave his house and family. Lonely and afflicted (Psalm 25:16), his only recourse was to turn to God and plead for mercy and God’s intervention (Psalm 25:21) because his only hope was in God. It is interesting to note that the word “lonely” is never used in the New Testament to describe people. In the New Testament, the word “lonely” only occurs twice and both times refers to desolate places (Mark 1:45; Luke 5:16), where Jesus moved off into the wilderness to be alone.

Whatever the cause of loneliness, for the Christian the cure is always the same—the comforting fellowship of Christ. That loving relationship with our Master has reassured and encouraged countless thousands who languished in prisons and even went to their deaths for His sake. He is the friend who “sticks closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24), who lays down His life for His friends (John 15:13-15), and who has promised never to leave us or forsake us but to be with us until the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). We can take comfort in the words of the old hymn that says it best: “Friends may fail me, foes assail me, He is with me to the end. Hallelujah, what a Savior!

My son is in the Navy and is about to get John 15:13 tatooed on him before he gets deployed to Afghanistan.

Our military men & women have lived by this for a long time

greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his frenids.

Love is a very “deep” emotion, yet we use this term very loosely in our everyday conversation. Ultimate love goes beyond the boundaries established by man. Jesus was our supreme example when he laid down his life for us who have all sinned and now are in desperate need of a Savior. There is no greater love than this! Praise Jesus to all and have a blessed day!
