Peter gives another command — love one another -- to help believers combat the loneliness of being scattered. In 1 Peter 1:22-25, Peter enunciates the idea that though scattered, believers are still a family — brothers and sisters in Christ. As such, he exhorts them to demonstrate sacrificial and brotherly love towards one another because they are purified and born again. These believers are scattered, but loving one another. Being scattered does not hinder believers from loving one another, instead it made the command all the more important.
