Admonish One Another (Colossians 3:16)

As we continue our series on the “one anothers” of Scripture, we are reminded that God cares about how we treat one another and He instructs us on how to do it properly.  This morning we shall discuss the uncomfortable yet important one another of admonition. In Colossians 3, God speaks to us through theContinue reading “Admonish One Another (Colossians 3:16)”

In Love Serve One Another (Galatians 5:13-15)

Of the many “one another” passages in the Bible, the one today is another one that is well-known but difficult to put into practice.  This morning we shall discuss the difference between having a man-centered and a Christ-centered view of salvation.  Our verses are found in Galatians 5:13-15: For you were called to freedom, brothers.Continue reading “In Love Serve One Another (Galatians 5:13-15)”

Able to Instruct One Another (Romans 15:14)

Speaking the Truth in Love (Ephesians 4:15)

Take a moment to consider the people who are in this worship service.  As you consider them, ask yourself this question: “Who are these people?”  This is not a silly exercise because how you answer that question about one another says a lot about how you treat one another. What if we refused to seeContinue reading “Speaking the Truth in Love (Ephesians 4:15)”

Stirring Up One Another (Hebrews 10:23-25)

Tragically, we find ourselves in an age in which our culture is intent on calling “evil good and good evil…putting darkness for light and light for darkness…putting bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Is. 5:20).  We find ourselves in a time in which Christian values are ridiculed as intolerant and oppressive and thus areContinue reading “Stirring Up One Another (Hebrews 10:23-25)”
