"One Anothers" You Won't Find in the Bible

I learned of this excellent post from Ray Ortlund's excellent blog from my friend (and agent extraordinaire) Steve Laube. Ortlund lists "one anothers" he says he can't find in the Bible:
Humble one another, scrutinize one another, pressure one another, embarrass one another, corner one another, interrupt one another, defeat one another, disapprove of one another, run one another’s lives, confess one another’s sins, intensify one another’s sufferings, point out one another’s failings . . . .

In a soft environment, where we settle for a false peace with present evils, we turn on one another. In a realistic environment, where we are suffering to advance the gospel, our thoughts turn to how we can stick up for one another.

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends.” John 15:12-13

  1. What a great way to look at the true meaning of love. Our actions and outlook should be different from the worlds. Thank you!
