Love One Another Leftovers
This past Sunday we considered loving one another (click here to listen and click here to watch). The New Testament has much to say in 47 verses about “one another” living, and over a third of the guidance is about love. We looked at a few of the passages Sunday morning, but I wanted to give you the rest.
If you’re looking for something to study in your Bible, if you’re looking for something to take you to the “next level” in your walk with God, this is it!
Ponder again the dying wish of a living Man.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
“These things I command you, so that you will love one another.”
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
