John 13:34-35

Earlier in this passage, Jesus expresses ultimate love and acceptance by washing the feet of his disciples. He humbled himself and lifted them up by serving them. These are attributes of those who follow Christ, but Jesus says the world will know we belong to him by the way we love and accept one another. He doesn’t mention feeding the poor or church attendance. He doesn’t say it will be because of our pure language or fancy Bible, but by the way we love one another.
