Scripture calls us to let the reality of our love for Christ be seen in our relationships with fellow believers. We are called minister to others according to their needs: to pray for one another, to be considerate of one another, to love one another, to exhort and encourage one another, to carry one another’s burdens, to forgive one another, even to rebuke one another, if needed. The disciples practiced mutual submission, consulting one another on doctrinal issues and working through disagreements so as to honor Christ. How is your reverence for Christ reflected in relationships with those around you?
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.—Ephesians 5:21
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I want others to see that there is something different, something appealing in the way that we Christians love one another. Help me to respect and support my brothers and sisters in Christ in visible ways as we live our lives for You. In Your name I pray, Amen.
