That they may all be one, as you Father are in me and I am in You. (John 17:21-22)
A new command I give you: Love one another. 
As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. (John 13:34-35)
All for the greater glory of God!
