18 Exhortations to the Church

The word "one another" comes up in exhortations in the New Testament.   Here are 18 exhortations to the Church to encourage us to function the way the Body of Christ was intended to function.
  1. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor (Romans 12:10).
  2. Live in harmony with one another (Romans 12:16).
  3. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God (Romans 15:7).
  4. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you (2 Corinthians 11:13).
  5. ...through love serve one another (Galatians 5:13).
  6. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2).
  7. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you (Ephesians 4:32).
  8. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
  9. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin (Hebrews 3:13).
  10. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed (James 5:16).
  11. Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8)
  12. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling (1 Peter 4:9)
  13. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. (1 Peter 4:10)
  14. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God (1 John 4:7)
  15. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another (Galatians 5:26).
  16. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices (Colossians 3:9).
  17. Do not speak evil against one another, brothers (James 4:11).
  18. Do not grumble against one another, brothers (James 5:9).
