The One Another's

Gospel Community can largely be defined by how we relate to one another. The word translated "one another" is used 47 times in the New Testament to instruct believers in how they are to relate in the church. But what are those "one another" commands?


I've broken down all of the one-another commands into three categories to help you see how they work: Commitment Commands, Communication Commands, and Caring Commands. Select one or two that you would like to grow in, and create a practical plan to grow in that area over the next month:
