Remaining In His Love

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands,you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.

John 15:9-10

As His (Jesus’) love for His Father was the source of obedience, and the motivation of His faithfulness to the work that had been committed to Him, so He declares that the love of His followers, imitating His love for them, was to be the source of their obedience.  Further, through their obedience, would come all the good that can come to human beings, including their love for one another.  Self-sacrificing love is the essence of the Christian life, its incentive being the self-sacrificing love of Christ himself.  On the Emotional Life of Our Lord, B.B.
