What Not To Do To “One Another” Even As We Bear Each Other’s Burdens

Right after Paul tells us to "serve one another in love" in Galatians 5:13, he shares something that he often does in his Spirit inspired words...he exhorts and admonishes us in the negative - what not to do or stop doing. Look at Galatians 5:15 and he gives us a negative "one another" command, “If you keep on biting and devouring each other…you will be destroyed by each other.” 
But I thought Christians always serve, share with and give to one another in love. Obviously...

Wait For and Serve Others Equally

Today’s first "one another" is somewhat interesting in that it is very simple to understand but evidently not always easy to follow through (maybe that's true of all of the "one anothers" and certainly true apart from Christ).

“Living in Harmony With All Others”

“Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.” Paul (Romans 12:16) As I stated last week, in one way or another all the "one anothers" point to love and loving one another. That's why Jesus could sum up all the law and the prophets with the two greatest commands and in fulfilling the second command The Holy Spirit guided men to write all the "one anothers." Remember we can...

Loving and Honoring One Another

“This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.” Jesus (John 15:12) Jesus command for us to love others as He loves us does not negate the 2 greatest commands…it reinforces them…and can’t be done without first obeying them! We continue with another "one another" and surprise, surprise and just as promised last week... it is "love one another" and we find it as Jesus continues with His teaching, encouraging and challenging His disciples in the Upper Room. This...
