“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34

“…Which commandment is the first of all?”  Jesus answered, “The first is, ‘Hear O Israel:  The Lord our God, the Lord is one; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’  The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no other commandment greater than these.”  Luke 12:28-31

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid.” John 14:27
