38 One Another Bible Verses

One another1

“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:11

Because of God’s great love for us we are given all we need to live and to love in harmony with one another, but none of us finds that easy. In our sinfulness and selfishness, we often only see our own way as the right way to go about living our lives.

‘One another’ Bible verses are clear in their advice, however, the reality of practicing these Biblical virtues of love, forgiveness, humility, patience, and hospitality, among many other things, is more easily said than consistently lived out.

So, ‘one another’ Bible verses serve as a wonderful starting point for our learning.

We do not know everything. There is always another side of the story. Pro. 18:17 says, “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.”

The point is we all have blind spots and we need to be aware of our lack of knowledge. We need to be humble to hear someone speak the truth in love to us about an area in our life where we need to mature in Christ.

So I encourage you to ask a loved one or a trusted friend, what area of your life needs to change? Ask them, where do you need to grow in holiness?

Applying these one another Bible verses helps us to “speak the truth in love” (to one another) so we can “grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.” –Eph. 4:15.

It is my prayer that these ‘one another’ Bible verses truly take root in our hearts and in our church this coming year and manifest themselves daily, evident through lives of  humble service to one another.
