"This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends." Jesus has shown his great love for us by laying down his life that we may have life. He has demonstrated his friendship. But how do we reflect our friendship? When we love others, we reflect our friendship with him. By his choice he remains a friend. But do I remain a friend in turn? The more we live in love, the more our intimacy with Jesus deepens. Love is the compelling mark of a true, lasting friendship.  But Jesus says that our love must extend beyond him and because of him to others.
