The Power of ‘One Another!”

 Don’t ever underestimate the lasting staying power of a God moment. God can do more in an afternoon, than man could do in a hundred years. It is not about the amount of minutes that make up twenty four hours but the quality of life that is achieved in every day. Some people say that because they are only going to be around a short time, they don’t want to get too attached but I am saying that you can forge a lifetime bond in one positive afternoon together. The heart was made for relationships. And we are at our best when we dive right into achieving the “one another’s” of Scripture together.

 Did you know that there are 59 “One Anothers” in the New Testament alone? This is one of the biggest reasons that you can’t do “Church” alone. You need others to do “Body Life.” And when we allow the Holy Spirit to accomplish some supernatural connecting among us, miracles happen within our midst. Are you ready for the list? Why not read this prayerfully and carefully and be open and honest in your evaluation. Give the Lord permission to move powerfully within you so that he can work practically through you. What if our gratitude this November was because we actually were courageous enough to invest in the hearts of the people all around us?

 Here is that “List of One Another’s!” Ready. Set. Go!  1. “…Be at peace with each other.” (Mark 9:50) 2. “…Wash one another’s feet.” (John 13:14) 3. “…Love one another…” (John 13:34) 4. “…Love one another…” (John 13:34) 5. “…Love one another…” (John 13:35) 6. “…Love one another…” (John 15:12) 7. “…Love one another” (John 15:17) 8. “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love…” (Romans 12:10) 9. “…Honor one another above yourselves.

The classic song of the sixties promised us that if we put a little love in our hearts that this world would be a better place. Our world right now is in desperate need of a love resurrection. And just because we have been banged around a bit doesn’t mean we are disqualified. Some of the most powerful people come from a scarred past. Pain, suffering, brokenness, mistakes, and setbacks; these things can teach us patience, perseverance, compassion, and hope which are essential components of helping us become love carriers that are agents of change. We don’t have to be people pleasers to be people lovers. So now is the time to do what’s right before God and let people think what they want. But it is hard to argue with the results. Fasten your seatbelts and unwrap each day as the gift that it is!
