Another. That was my “one word” in 2013. By studying this, it really struck me how the Lord wants us to be involved with the body of believers He wants to us be in community. To function as a team.
The Lord wants us to be his hands and feet, to care for and to serve one another. He stresses we need to take care of our spiritual family, partly because the world is watching.
Over the last few years, I have been a part of helping a number of families move. Most of these physical transitions were due to a financial change. I was just one of the dozens of hands and feet participating. Neighbors could not believe the all the helpers who arrived on the scene. Some even asked if we were from a moving company.
“No. We all belong to the same bible study.”
Some wanted to know where and when this study met.
What a great witness for Jesus.
His ultimate goal is that none should perish. God wants us to be a part of building up the body of believers. He wants us to serve each other. He wants us to love each other deeply.
Here are some “anothers” that will move you to action within the body of Christ:
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” ~Jesus
