In Acts 1:8, Jesus tells us "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." And in John 13:34-35, Jesus says "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as i have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
