According to the teaching of Jesus in John 13:35, how are his followers to be recognized?

According to John 13:35, Jesus said that his followers will be recognized because they have “washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” This is a teaching about salvation through Jesus Christ. We are all sinners who deserve eternal punishment for our actions. The only way we can be saved from this fate is by accepting Jesus as our Savior and following him with our whole heart.

Those who do this will be made white as snow and washed clean of their sins in the blood of Jesus. The way to know if someone has accepted Christ is through his or her actions, not by what they say. John 13:35 tells us that we’ll recognize a follower because he/she “has washed his robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”

We can also tell followers apart from others because they live out Jesus’ teachings. They share meals with other Christians, care for widows and orphans, love their enemies, pray without ceasing, try to keep themselves pure even when tempted with sin. all things which are different than those who don’t follow him closely at all times (John 13:36).
