4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.
And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.”
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.
You are my friends if you do what I command you.
1 JOHN 3:22
and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
