Our affection for Christ is very much proved by the regard we (Christians) have for one another. Love is not put as a test in regard of God but in our relationships with one another. It is no use talking about loving Christ unless you love one another. Righteousness comes out in love one to another—it is the necessary sequence. You have to recognise the brethren as kindred to Christ.
