Our responsibility for others

(Matt. 25:31-46)

When we help (or do not help) our fellow Christians who are hungry, naked, sick, or imprisoned, we are helping (or not helping) the Lord Jesus.

Our love for each other was the mission strategy of the Lord Jesus. (John 13:35)

The foremost command of Jesus, our Lord was that we love each other, and lay down our lives for each other. (John 13:34-35; John 15:12-14, 17)

The Law of Christ is fulfilled when Christians ‘carry each other’s burdens.’ (Gal. 6:2).


Love of Christians for one other is defined by the Apostle John as sharing  material possessions with other Christians who are in need. (1 John 3:16-19)

Helping Christians in need is defined by the Apostle Paul as ‘the proof of our love,’ and proof of our obedience to the Gospel. (2 Cor. 8:13)

We are commanded to ‘love not just with word and tongue, but with actions and in truth.’ (1 John 16-19).

We are to wash one another’s feet as a sign of humbly serving. (John 13:14)

How can we be a blessing to one another?

By teaching:

Teach one another (Col. 3:16).
Instruct one another (Rom. 5:14).

By encouraging:

Encourage one another (Col. 3:16; Heb. 10:25).
Exhort one another (Heb. 3:13).
Speak the truth to one another (Eph. 4:25).
Spur one another to love and good deeds (Heb. 10:24).

By edifying:

Edify (strengthen, build up) one another (1 Thess. 4:1; 5:1, 11).
Edify one another gathering together each one with a hymn, a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or its interpretation. (1 Cor. 14:26)

By giving spiritual care:

Confess our sins one to another and pray for one another (James 5:16).

'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!
