Schaeffer: the mark

This is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.
—1 John 3:11 (NIV)

Love—and the unity it attests to—is the mark Christ gave Christians to wear before the world. Only with this mark may the world know that Christians are indeed Christians and that Jesus was sent by the Father.
... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), The Mark of the Christian, Inter-Varsity Press, 1976, p. 36 (see the book)
