One Anothers of the New Testament - Part 1
V. 3 ** Please read this verse and give me in one
word the attitude required for not compromising God's word in the face
of daily temptations.
Humility. Realizing that all that we are is by God's grace, even the
measure of faith that He has
allotted to us.
V. 4 ** From what analogy in life is Paul borrowing
to make his point about how believers interact?

for the benefit of the body, and all share in their importance. All
see - 1Corinthians 12:12-25
Now back in Romans 12 -
V. 5 ** What is the overarching principle in the
study of "The One Anothers of the New Testament"?
We are..."individually members one of another".
** How does an attitude of humility (V.3) become useful
when allowed to blossom in this truth?
The more that I humbly acknowledge the other members of the body of
Christ to be part of God's design the more I will be like Jesus Himself.
V.10 ** The first two commands regarding one another
come from verse ten and each have a qualifier. What is the first one and
how is it qualified?

"...in brotherly love." from philadelphos, the word is philadelphia
and means "the love of brothers"
** What was the second command"
