One Anothers of the New Testament - Part 3
PHILIPPIANS, COLOSSIANS, 1THESSALONIANS Page
** Let's look at these two verses together for our next instruction. Before
we get to the command, what are the five components to the heart of a
Compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Remember
beloved, this is who we are. All of our actions, even thoughts should
be born out of this kind of heart.
V.13 ** Now that our heart is right before the Lord, what does
He command us to do?
3) "bear with one another" How is this different from our
last study, when we learned to bear one another's burdens?
This word is 'anexomai' and means to endure, to hold out in spite of
persecution, threats, injury, indifference, or complaints and not to
retaliate. cf. 1Corinthians 4:12-13
** What is inevitably going to happen to us in this life according to
Someone is going to complain against us! And how are we to respond?
Forgiving them just as the Lord forgave you!
V.16 ** Our next command comes from verse 16 and while it sounds
very familiar, in this passage it comes with the necessary equipment to
obey it. First of all, what is the "One Another" command?
4) "teaching and admonishing one another"
We learned in Part one of this series (while in Romans 15:14) that
we were "full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, and able
also to admonish one another". Here in our passage for today, what
is the requirement for every Christian so that they will "with
all wisdom" teach and admonish his or her fellow believer?
Let the word of Christ [the Lord] [God] richly dwell within you!
** Which word in that command describes the amount of time we should
spend in God's word?
"Richly" We should be rich in our knowledge of God's word.
Not so that we will do well in the Religious category on Jeopardy, but
so that we will past the test of life each day that He lets us live
for Him. - Also, the word "dwell", meaning to settle down
and be comfortable!
