THE ONE ANOTHER SCRIPTURES Print
Thursday, 25 August 2011 12:29

Right doctrine without relational integrity is dead orthodoxy.  You do not learn to be friends by sitting in a classroom listening to someone lecture.  You learn to be friends by following Jesus together in daily life.   The New Testament is full of relational commandments.  Forty “one another scriptures”  are given here but the list could be extended to about seventy if you included similar verses which use words such as “brothers”, “neighbors” or “members”.

These commands, sown through out the New Testament, enforce the reality of communities of friends in flat relational structures who are to act from the heart to serve each other and in so doing serve the King who lives in each one of them.

1/ John 13:34- 35, A new commandment I give to you that you love one another;  as I have loved you, that you also love  one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.

2/ John 15:12, This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have love you.

5/ Romans 12:10, Giving preference to one another.

16/ Galatians 5:13- 15, For you,  brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.  For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another.
