Jesus said in John 13:34-35 to the disciples that their love for one another will prove to the world that they are the disciples of Jesus. If that is true, then the Great Commission must include creating an environment of love in the body of Christ, namely the church. Many don't understand what love is, especially the love that comes from God. We often interpret love the way we know it in our culture. But the Bible explains that the love is like a family bond or attachment that no one can break. If we practice this kind of love to one another, we will be known to the world that we belong to Christ.
