The One Anothers of the New Testament - Part 1

ROMANS            Page 4
V.10 (cont'd.)

** How does the qualifier eliminate hypocrisy?

By doing it with honor, it prevents a superficial or showy preference that would then speak evil of the same person when they are not present.

Let's pick up the pace a little as we conclude our list for this today.

V.16 ** What is the next one another command?

(3) "Be of the same mind toward one another" What does that mean? Does it mean that Christians should always agree on what color to paint the church?

No - It means to be impartial, do not show any favoritism and be just like God!
cf. Romans 2:11

** But isn't that going to require a huge amount of perseverance and encouragement?

Yes- Paul knew that, which is why just three chapters later he wrote Romans 15:5.

For the next command, let's turn to chapter 14, verse 19.

V.19 ** What are we to do for one another according to Paul?

(4) Build up one another. Is that passive? We can just lay back and it will happen?

No, we should "pursue" the things which make for peace...

Since we have already noted Romans 15:5, let's see the next command in chapter 15, verse 7.

V. 7 ** What are we to do and how are we to do it?

(5) "accept one another" - "just as Christ also accepted [you] us"

** What will be the outcome if we accept one another?

"to the glory of God" God, Himself will be glorified!

V.14 ** If we accept one another, does that mean we have no concern for the lifestyle of a fellow believer?

(6) No, the next command provides the balance. We are to "admonish" one another.
