One Anothers

lightstock_150291_medium_user_3915942There are more than 100 references to One Another living in the Bible! And its pages, both Old and New Testament, are filled with examples of God’s people taking care of one another. Even when done imperfectly, which was often the case, we can learn how God intended for us to not just survive, but thrive in the life He has given us and in every season of our lives.

Joshua and Moses
Joseph and His Brothers
Ruth and Naomi
Rahab and the Spies
Jonathan and David
Mordecai and Esther
Jesus and His Disciples
Martha and Mary and Lazurus
Stephen and the other Elders
Barnabas and Paul
Barnabas and Mark
Dorcas and the Widows
Paul and Philemon… and many others!!

We simply are not meant to live life alone! We need each other and Jesus said if we will lightstock_152996_medium_user_3915942live like one anothers and quite trying to do it all on our own and expecting others to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, then the world will know we are His disciples and we will be the peculiar people we were meant to be for God’s glory!
