One Anothers of the New Testament - Part 4
HEBREWS, JAMES, 1PETER Page
V.10 ** First, find the command in this verse?
9) serving one another!
** OK, what does every believer have in common?
We each have received a special gift at the time of our salvation.
That spiritual gift is to be used, not for our benefit, but for the
benefit of others.
** If we were to faithfully do this, what would we prove
to, be according to the end of this verse?
"...good stewards of the manifold grace of God". cf. 1Corinthians
And finally in chapter five -
V. 5 ** This often repeated theme in the New Testament is here
accompanied by a very strong motive. What are we to do?
10) "...clothe yourselves with humility toward one another"
** What is the motive?
"God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble"
Because we do not want to be found in opposition to our beloved Savior
and we do wish to be recipients of His grace, we should be compelled
to put on these new clothes!
** We have been privileged to learn so much today. Let me
take you back to the beginning. Do you really want to glorify the Lord
with your life?
Do you think that others around you will notice a tremendous difference
because you were here?
** What were the one another commands for today?
1. encourage (non-believers to accept the gospel)
2. stimulate one another to love and good deeds
3. do not slander
4. do not complain
5. confess your sins to one another
6. pray for one another
7. love one another, fervently
8. be hospitable
9. serve (as good stewards)
10. clothe yourself with humility
** From that list, what do you suppose is the key to glorifying
the Lord as we live in this world?
Number 10, ...clothe yourself with "humility"!
