“The command of John 13:34 comes in the context of the last evening before the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It may be that what we see in John chapters 13‑17 is in fact the shorter catechism of all He had taught His friends over their three year journey of discipleship. That which is recorded includes demonstration of His love for them in the process of washing their feet and predicting His crucifixion through the bread and wine. It was followed by His proclamation of what He was about to do, what the future of the disciples would be, and how through His Spirit their care would be safeguarded and their ministry implemented. He concludes with supplication as He reviews the essence of His journey on earth: “that they may have Eternal Life...this is Eternal Life that they may know You and Jesus Christ whom You have sent...that they may glorify Me…that they may be One as we are One that the world may know that You have sent Me” (John 17).” Dave Pollock, Developing a Flow of Care and Caregivers, Doing Member Care Well (2002, p. 23)

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself. We know that when Christ appears we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is. All who have this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure. I Cor. 15: 53; Phil 3: 20-21, I John 3: 2-3
