The “one another” passages in the New Testament demonstrate the importance of caring for our brothers and sisters in our Christian community. That there are so many of these passages illustrates that this is a non-negotiable for brothers and sisters. We don’t have to look far to see there is also plenty of need.


Bible study

Read Galatians 5 v 13 – 6 v 10

  1. In 5 v 13-25, what reasons does Paul give for doing good to one another? What makes it possible to be caring and not selfish?
  2. What dangers might we fall into as we seek to care for one another (6 v 1, 3-4, 9)? What ideas do you have on how you can avoid those while not holding back on caring for others?
  3. What is our aim and ultimate hope as we do good to one another? How does this help us to persevere?
  4. What is the greatest challenge in these verses for you personally?



Loving Heavenly Father,
Would our Dundonald church family be a community where love for you and for others is the heart of all we are and do.
You continually pour out on us protecting, providing, comforting, confronting, strengthening, hope-giving and motivating grace.
Would we, in turn, overflow with spirit-filled love and care for one another.
And as we do this, would your light shine beautifully in Raynes Park and beyond.
