Overflowing Love for One Another


“and may the Lord cause you to increase and overflow in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you;”     Paul   (1 Thessalonians 3:12) Only when we come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord can we truly increase and overflow in our love for others because He is The Source of Real Love!

Admonish One Another


“…admonishing one another...” Paul  (Colossians 3:16c) Teaching and admonishing others are both very important and necessary aspects of growing in The Lord, and in particular, making disciples who make disciples.

In that same verse, the Apostle Paul shows us what must be done in...

Bear With One Another


“…bearing with one another,…” Paul  (Colossians 3:13a) What does it mean to lovingly “bear with one another?” It literally means that we empathetically and patiently build relationships with (relate to) one another in humility and gentleness. If you haven’t noticed this is not always easy…but it doesn’t change God’s Word and how we are to live and relate in Christ! Remember when Paul told the Ephesians to "be patient and bear with one another in love." Well this must be pretty important and The Holy...
