"My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me." Psalms 63:8

Next to pride, a lack of love was the sin for which the Lord had often rebuked His disciples. These two sins have in truth the same root: the desire for pleasing self.  The new commandment that He gave them, the characteristic whereby all men should know that they were his disciples, was their love for one another.
