Bible “One Anothers”

I thought I had posted this before, but I couldn’t find it. Once I did a word search on the Bible for the “one another” passages that instruct us in how to minister to each other. It was very convicting! Here’s what I found:

Bible “One Anothers”

Wash one another’s feet—John 13:14.
Love one another—John 13:3; 15:12, 17; Romans 13:8; I Peter 1:22; I John 3:11, 23; 4:7, 11.
In honor preferring one another—Romans 12:10.
Don’t judge one another—Romans 14:13.
Receive one another—Romans 15:7.
Salute one another—Romans 16:16.*
Greet one another—I Cor. 16:20, II Cor. 13:12, I Peter 5:14.
Serve one another—Gal. 5:13.
Don’t provoke one another or envy one another—Gal. 5:26.
Bear one another’s burdens—Gal. 6:2.
Forbear one another in love—Eph. 4:2, Col. 3:13.
Forgive one another—Eph. 4:32, Col. 3:13.
Teach and admonish one another with song—Col. 3:16.
Comfort one another—I Thess. 4:18.
Edify one another—I Thess. 5:11.
Exhort one another— Heb. 3:13; 10:25.
Consider one another to provoke unto love and good works—Heb. 10:24.

(* Looking up the Strong’s definition, “salute” means “to draw to one’s self, to salute one, greet, bid welcome, wish well to, to receive joyfully, welcome,” even “retarding” one’s own journey to do so.)

  3. I’m a newbee in the “blog-world”, and as I google about christian women’s blogs I came across this website and attracted to your “title” : Stray Thoughts.. (I think I’m not only have some stray thoughts, but sometimes also “strained” (such as strained muscle) thoughts! ) and I have read your posts “The Community Believers” and “Bible One- another”. I’m interested to write to you in private emails. Would that be ok ?

  4. Barbara, Been awhile since I stopped in. Read your recent “day of funny observations”. Thanks for making me smile and giggle a little! Am copying this list to use in my personal devotions this week. Thank you.

    Am heading over to link your post on my CLM Facebook page so the ladies can enjoy it too.

  5. Barbara,
    Thank you for this list of scriptures. I have been collecting a similar let from another blog. A question has occurred to me that I would like to present to you. Who are the “one another”s that are referred to? Are they within the church or everyone?
    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    • After just a quick glance at the different passages listed I think most if not all of them are addressed to Christians as dealing with other Christians. And yet many of them could be done with unbelievers and would even be a good witness to them, particularly preferring them before ourselves, loving, greeting, serving, bearing their burdens, doing humble tasks like washing feet, forbearing, forgiving, comforting, etc. Things like teaching and exhorting would depend on what they’re open to receiving.
