Living in harmony with one another


Living in harmony with one another
(Rom. 12:9-16; 1 Cor. 1:10-17)
The Bible has several other ‘One another’ commandments for our daily living. These include: ‘encouraging, admonishing and accepting one another’ and several others. We must realize that although we are all different, we are all called into a special relationship with God and with one another.
The church is called into a vertical relationship with its God and Saviour and a horizontal relationship with those who are different. Both the people we know and do not know yet, must experience and demonstrate Christ’s desire for harmony.

Have fellowship one with another!

‘But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.’ (1 John 1:7)

Forgive one another!

‘I ask you, therefore, not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory.’ (Eph. 3:13) ‘Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.’ (Eph. 4:32) ‘Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.’ (Col. 3:13)

Greet one another with a holy kiss!

‘All the brothers here send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.’ (1 Cor. 16:20)

Kisses mentioned in the Bible:

· Kiss of affection (Gen. 27:26-27; 31:55; 33:4; 48:10; 50:1; Ex. 18:7).

· The kiss of the penitent woman at the feet of the Lord Jesus (Luke 7:38).

· Deceitful kiss (Prov. 27:6).

· The kiss of Joab, when he killed Amasa (2 Sam. 20:9-10).

· The kiss of Judas, when he betrayed the Lord Jesus (Matt. 26:48; Luke 22:48).

· The holy kiss (Rom. 16:16; 2 Cor. 13:12; 1 Thess. 5:26; 1 Peter 5:14).

· The kiss of love (1 Peter 5:14).

Wait for one another to break bread!

‘So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for each other.’ (1 Cor. 11:33).

Bear one another’s sufferings!

‘If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.’ (1 Cor. 12:26)

'A job is at your choice; a ministry is at Christ's call. In a job you expect to receive; in a ministry you expect to give. In a job you give something to get something; in a ministry you return something that has already been given to you. A job depends on your abilities; a ministry depends on your availability to God. A job done well brings you praise; a ministry done well brings honour to Christ.'

This ministry is to bring honour to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
