John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
As Christians we are to be known for our love one to another John 13:34, 35. This love is a supernatural, selfless, and giving love. We don’t love just for benefits we receive but God has certainly promised those who walk in love special blessings. It pays to obey God and “lovers get it all.”
