“How Will They Know?”  John 13:34-35; 17:20-23

 

John 13:  34 “I give you a new commandment:  Love each other.  Just as I have loved you, so you also must love each other.  35 This is how everyone will know that you are my disciples, when you love each other.”

 

John 17:  20 “I’m not praying only for them but also for those who believe in me because of their word.  21 I pray they will be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.  I pray that they also will be in us, so that the world will believe that you sent me.  22 I’ve given them the glory that you gave me so that they can be one just as we are one.   23 I’m in them and you are in me so that they will be made perfectly one.  Then the world will know that you sent me and that you have loved them just as you loved me.
