59 ‘One Another’ Statements in the New Testament

hillside Community

Having sat here, typing out each of these verses one by one, I was blessed with time to reflect on how I see (or see the lack of) these actions in my own life. Do we treat each other with these lessons in mind? How often do we forget that we are called to something different because of the One that lives within us, allowing the quickness of the flesh to overcome our actions? I pray we read these words, learn from them, and ask the Lord to show us the areas where we are not treating each other well. We long to encourage and cultivate a body made into authentic, loving community. As the hands and feet of Jesus, we are called to treat one another differently than the world does. What a gift we have in the Word of God, which directs us in all our actions!
