Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus’ Commandments” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims, “If you keep My Commandments, you will remain in My Love . . . I no longer call you servants; I call you friends.”  Ponder on, “To know and love God our Father personally, and to serve His Will, we need to keep His Commandments daily and faithfully; through the Good News of Salvation.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 15:9-17

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I have loved you just as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my own joy may be in you and your joy be complete. This is my commandment: love one another, as I have loved you.

‘I shall no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know the master’s business; I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learnt from my Father. You did not choose me, no, I chose you; and I commissioned you to go out and to bear fruit, fruit that will last; so that the Father will give you anything you ask him in my name. My command to you is to love one another.’
