52 John 1514-17. This is the clearest and simplest expression of both the terms for friendship and the definition of this special relationship with Jesus Christ. The terms for becoming Jesus friend are very clear. Faith in Jesus brings eternal life John 647 but only those believers who obey His commands will experience a close personal relationship with the Son of God 1514. The definition of friendship with the Son of God is A relationship in which the Lord fully discloses His thoughts 1515-17. This means He helps us to understand His Word the Bible. Chapter 15 11 I have spoken these things to you so that My joy may abide in you and your joy may be complete. 12 This is My commandment that you love one another just as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this that someone would lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15 I dont call you servants any more because a servant doesnt know what his master is doing. But I have called you friends because I have made known to you everything I have heard from My Father. 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you and appointed you that you should go out and produce much fruit and that your fruit should endure so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He will give you. 17 These things I command you that you love one another. Persecutions Predicted 18 If the world hates you be sure that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world but I have chosen you out of the world the world hates you. 20 Keep in mind the statement that I made to you Aservant is not greater than his master.If they persecuted Me they will also persecute you. If they kept My word they will also keep yours. 21 On the contrary they will do all these things to you for My Names sake because they dont know the One who sent Me. 22 If I hadnt come and spoken to them they would have no sin. But now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 The one who hates Me hates My Father too. 24 If I hadnt done the works among them which no one else has done they would have no sin. But now they have seen and hated both Me and My Father. 25 But this is so
