The local church is an interdependent body made up of men and women who have believed the Gospel by repenting of sin and trusting in Christ. Jesus, the architect of the church, did not leave the church without instructions on how to relate to each other in His body. The often-repeated phrase, “one another,” occurs 100 times in the New Testament. Approximately 59 of these occurrences are specific commands that teach us how (and how not) to relate to one another. This morning, we’ll look at the foundational command for the rest of these "one another’s" - Love one another!
Theme: Our connection to Jesus through the new birth and His abiding in us enables and causes us to love one another.
