Remembering One Another

10.29.14 Scriptures: 2 Cor 5:17, Ephesians 3:20, and Mark 12:29-30 Topics: Life of the Body

Recently at Alpine Bible Church, we concluded a series called “One Another”. We recognized that God has called us to live a life that radiates His glory in this world. We were created to know God personally and to walk with him. The Bible tells us the way we demonstrate our relationship with God is through our relationship with others. Jesus said the greatest two commandments are all about relationships, loving God and loving others (Mark 12:29-30). Our vertical relationship with God is affected by our horizontal relationship with others.

In the western world we like to make ourselves feel worthy by our intellectual knowledge. However, we should not measure our spirituality by what we know but rather by what we do with what we know. If Jesus has truly redeemed you and transformed your heart with a new nature, (2 Cor 5:17) it will be demonstrated in your life. Our spiritual life is not validated because we go to church on Sunday, You are the church everyday. This means you live out your faith wherever you are. Rather than seeing yourself as one who goes to church. See yourself as one who is the church. You show up at corporate gatherings in order to live as God’s church. You can’t be what God has called you to be simply by sitting in a chair on a Sunday morning. We gather to hear from God’s word and worship Him so that we can go out on Sunday and live for Jesus on Monday. We understand that the purpose of gathering on Sunday is so that we are encouraged to surrender to God by His grace, be transformed by the power of His truth, and display Jesus in our living.

Just for an encouraging reminder…. Below are 59 one another statements in the Bible that Jesus has called us to live out as the Church. None of these One another statements are lived out by our strength, but only by surrender to God. This allows His Spirit to move in us and through us according to his power. It is a gift of His Grace.

 Ephesians 3:20 says ” to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,”

Don’t look at the following list of “One Another” and attempt to “try harder” because you feel as if you are failing. Instead, if you recognize areas you are falling short, be honest with Jesus and surrender your life to Him. Let him work in you rather than you work in your own strength out of Guilt. Remember God supplies for you out of his strength and through his relationship with you. It is not out of our religious living apart from Him. May God lead his people to be the “one another” he has called us to be.
