The One Anothers of the New Testament - Part 2

V.19 (cont'd.)

** By what are we going to need to be controlled in order to always speak in this manner?

The Holy Spirit Himself! cf. V.18

Then last, but not least, how do we view each other?

V.21 ** What do you suppose Paul means by "be subject" to one another?

7) "...be subject to one another..."

hupotasso - originally as a military term, this word meant to arrange or rank under. Here, Paul is saying that Holy Spirit controlled Christians will desire to rank themselves under one another.

This is what Paul had in mind when he instructed the Philippians and where we learned to regard one another as more important than ourself. cf. Philippians 2:3

** What great motivator does Paul give us to do this very humbling act?

"...in the fear of Christ" Since it is our desire to fearfully worship our Lord and Savior, we will follow His example of humility as an act of true worship.

Please turn in your Bible to Philippians 2:5-8 and we will close with the greatest act of humility ever known to mankind. Read passage.


** What kind of character traits will be needed for us to obey the one another commands we have learned together today?

Humility, long suffering, joyfulness, thanksgiving.


** What were the one another commands for this morning's part two study?

1. care for one another 2. serve 3. bear burdens
4. forbearance 5. be kind 6. speak 7. be subject
