The One Anothers of the New Testament - Part 3

PHILIPPIANS, COLOSSIANS, 1THESSALONIANS            Page 4

V.12-13

** 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 true believer?

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 this verse?

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!
