Remember... (John 15:9-17)Rev Gareth James, November 11, 2018
Part of the Remembrance Day series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Remember what? There are always things to remember – Remember, remember! The fifth of November, The Gunpowder treason and plot; or Remember you’re a Womble; or remember this, remember that. In other words – do not forget… We can remember we are loved and cared for, but at times we can forget and fail to appreciate all the blessings that we have. So what things are we to remember today?

9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another.
