the one another commands

in bible study last night we were reminded of the "one another" commands. {thank you dr. del tackett- the truth project} oh my, do i fall short of what God has commanded of me. i thought they were worth posting.

here they are....

Love one another (1 Peter 1:22)
Bear one another's burdens ( Gal 6:2)
Pray for one another (James 5:16)
Forebear one another (Eph 4:2)
Be kind to one another (Eph 4:32)
Admonish one another (Col 3:16)
Build one another up (Rom 14:16)

Give preference to one another (Rom 12:10)

Live in harmony with one another (Rom 12:16)

Encourage one another (1 Thess 5:11)
Submit to one another (Eph 5:21)

Serve one another (Gal 5:13)
Accept one another (Rom 15:7)

Be devoted to one another (Rom 12:10)

Teach one another ( Col 3:16)

Comfort one another (1 Thess 4:18)
Forgive one another (Eph 4:32)
Be of the same mind with one another (Rom 15:5)
Regard one another as more important ( Phil 2:3)

heavenly father, i fall short of these commands so much. please forgive me for not loving the way that i should or not considering others before myself. Lord, help me to shed my selfishness and fill me with your Holy Spirit, so that i may live in obedience to you.

reading these is so convicting and yet so encouraging at the same time. i WANT to be like that! it is constant and continual submission to the Spirit's guidance, isn't it?

great photo to go with the post!

Thank you for the list! A while back a friend mentioned she did a study of the "one anothers" in the Bible and was really convicted. I have been considering it; so you added it to my future to do list.
