Welcome One Another

"One Another: Doing Church Better" is our summer message series exploring some of the "One Another" statements in the Bible.

The 50 “one another” commands in the New Testament give us specific ways to live out Jesus’ ONE command to love one another.

1 Peter 4:7-10 NIV
7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. 8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

philos – to befriend or love
xenos – stranger
philoxenos – to love strangers or welcome a stranger as a guest

1 Peter 4:9 NLT
9 Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.

Open your heart and your home to people you don’t know yet.

1 Peter 4:9 NIV
9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.

WHAT'S GETTING IN THE WAY?
- I’M TOO BUSY! We need to make room for people that God brings into our life.
- I’M EMBARRASSED OR INSECURE! We need to welcome others more for what we can give than what we can get out of it.
- I’M NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THESE PEOPLE! We need to view others as God does.

1 Peter 4:7 NIV
7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.

1 Peter 4:8 NIV
8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

1 Peter 4:10 NIV
10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

WHY WE HAVE TO DO IT:
- Time is short.
- We all need it.
- God expresses His grace to others through us.
- Jesus welcomed us.

Romans 15:7 NIV
7 Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
