John 13:31-35

How can you identify true Christians? According to Jesus, it is by their love for other Christians. “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35). Believers have an obligation to love other believers, for it is the Lord’s command.

Followers of Jesus must follow the example of Jesus in selflessly loving our brothers and sisters in Christ. Loving unity gives evidence of our obedience, because love demonstrates our discipleship. To be united in Christ, Christians must obey God’s command to love each other.
