As we continue our series on the One Another commands of the New Testament we see that the Church of Christ is the Body of Christ, made up of many members.
As Members of One Another… • We Need One Another (Romans 12:3-5) • To Encourage One Another (1 Corinthians 12:12-19) • To Honor One Another (1 Corinthians 12:20-24) • To Sympathize with One Another (1 Corinthians 12:25-27)
If It Wasn’t For God’s Word the Bible––We Wouldn’t Know… How the World Began, How the World Ends, or What is Important in between, or Who Wins! We Wouldn’t Know How to Be Saved From Our Condemnation of Sin. We Wouldn’t Know that God Loves Us and Gave His Own Son to Die for us. There’s a lot in life we don’t know––but because of the Bible, We Do Know This… That No Matter What Happens––God is on His Throne and Jesus is King
Encouraging one another is a command given to the people of God. Even a mustard seed of encouragement can help a brother or sister struggling with discouragement. May God help us to encourage one another to keep the faith.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with Him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:9
Series: One Another Commands: Lesson 1 Pre-recorded for November 1, 2020
We have reached the final lesson in the Miracles of Jesus sermon series. And in some ways we come full circle. We are on the same shore of the Sea of Galilee where Jesus first called His disciples to follow Him. They had been fishing all night and caught nothing. But Jesus told Peter to cast out again. Peter insisted that they had already fished all night without any results, but he cast out anyway, as Jesus had asked, and they caught so many fish that their nets were breaking and their boats were sinking. Now almost three years later, the same thing happens! They have come full circle, but this time they are changed, transformed after spending three years with the Lord who is now risen from the dead!
