More for The Others

Yesterday we looked at how we as Christians are to NOT treat others.  Today we look at how we are to treat them. There is so mush that we are to do for each other. This is one of those areas where the following maxim holds true, “If we do the dos we don’t have time to do the don’ts.”

  1. A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. (John 13:34)
  2. So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding. (Romans 14:19)
  3. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. (Romans 15:7)
  4. I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another. (Romans 15:14)
  5. For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. (Galatians 5:13)
  6. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)
  7. with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, (Ephesians 4:2)
  8. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32)
  9. submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. (Ephesians 5:21)
  10. and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you, (1 Thessalonians 3:12)
  11. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. (James 5:16)
  12. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. (1 Peter 4:9)

It is time we as Christians stop looking out for ourselves, we must stop being self-serving as we remove selfishness from our lives. The time is past to begin taking on the mind of Christ and serve others.
