What the church family should BE...

"The phrase 'one another' or 'each other' is used over 50 times in the New Testament.

We are commanded to love each other, pray for each other, encourage each other, admonish each other, greet each other, serve each other, teach each other, accept each other, honor each other, bear each other's burdens, forgive each other, sing to each other, submit to each other, and be devoted to each other.

This is what every believer should do, it's called 'works of service or the ministry and in my opinion is the best Pastoral system there is. We are all ministers of Christ, a royal priesthood and need to function.

This takes the responsibility off the leaders and frees them to do what they are supposed to do which is to equip the saints for the ministry. If we can do this I believe the church will grow because Jesus said it would!

Can you imagine what could happen if the church 'Christs body' took responsibility for one another rather than expecting leaders to 'DO IT ALL' which quite frankly is impossible.

True spiritual maturity is about serving others. So come on guys stop spectating and start participating! What do you need to do today?
