John 15:1-8

Like the Old Testament allegory of the vine this Gospel holds up a beautiful and meaningful expression of relationship that the believer must take to heart. The commandment of love is rooted in the love of the Father and the Son and the love of Jesus and the disciples. It is a love both mutual and reciprocal. For John the love Christians have for one another is a reflection of the loving relationship with the divine.

I have read that we will be judged on how well we have loved. Help me Lord to love you, myself, and others with my whole heart.
