Weekly News from WCUMC-9/30/2012 Sharing the transforming love of Jesus, across the street and around the world."No Longer Servants, But Friends"“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. Ifyou keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept myFather’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joymay be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Loveeach other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to laydown one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what Icommand. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know hismaster’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that Ilearned from my Father I have made known to you.You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you mightgo and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in myname the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other." John 15:9-17We have been chosen. If we remain in Him, we are His friends.Friendship with Jesus meets two of the greatest needs of our life:acceptance and Intimacy.We need connection through the acceptance and intimacy that comes throughthe love of Jesus in our lives. Nothing gives more powerful witness to ourfriendship with Christ, and nothing is more effective in bringing others toclaim their closeness by Christ, than our love.Next week– “Not everyone who says Lord, Lord"” – Matthew 7:21-23, Rick Vinther, preaching
