John 15:15-17Amplified Bible (AMP)
14 You are my friends if you keep on doing what I command
15 I do not call you servants any longer, for the servant does not know
what his master is doing; but I have called you [My] friends,
because I have revealed to you everything that I have heard from My Father.
16 You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed
and placed and purposefully planted you, so that you would go and bear fruit
and keep on bearing, and that your fruit will remain and be lasting,
so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name [as My representative]
He may give to you.
17 This [is what] I command you: that you love and
unselfishly seek the best for one another.
