Wesley's Notes for John 15:9


15:9 Abide ye in my love - Keep your place in my affection. See that ye do not forfeit that invaluable blessing. How needless a caution, if it were impossible for them not to abide therein?

Thank you Jesus for your words you are faithful to your promises thank you for the blessings you have given me praise God hallelujah

    The chapter in context -key: in me(Jesus) - deals with (believers, The Saved) Love, Abide and Fruit Bearing, vs 6. fruit(work) shall burn if we don't abide it becomes wood, hay, and stubble(1 Cor 3:11-15)..Fruit (Gal 5:22-23) Love then encompasses all Joy and Peace in us, (next three) with our brethren, (last three) with God. God's work thru us.. Faith in Jesus Christ and love for the brethren.

    "..but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you." Do you ever think about why God had His Prophets write the Bible so large? We have to understand that God DOES INDEED intend us to know all things, but He waits for us to be able to bear it. There is no need, and absolutely no allowance for guessing, if we are true and sincere His friends!
