John 15:9 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "As the Father hath loved me," (kathos egapesen me ho pater) "Just as the Father has loved me," and does yet love me, Joh 5:20; Joh 10:14-15; Joh 17:26. Love is the highest motivating virtue that tends to unity and inspires service of discipleship to the Lord.

2) "So have I loved you:" (kago himas egapesa) "I have also loved you all," as individuals, and as a chosen, obedient, and witnessing comrade body, church, company, or assembly, that has companied with me, from the baptism of John, Act 1:21-22; Joh 15:16; Joh 15:27; Joh 13:34-35; Joh 13:1.

3) "Continue ye in my love." (meinate en te agape te eme) "You all remain in my love," go on in my love, continually, doing my work, until your work on earth is done, as I have done my Father's work, Joh 17:4-5; Heb 13:1; 1Jn 3:14; 1Jn 4:19.

Continue to seek to deserve and enjoy the blessings of Jesus Christ, through service rendered out of gratitude, and thanksgiving, Psa 95:2; Php_4:6; Col 4:2.
