Throughout the New Testament, we are exhorted by Paul with “one another.” He reminded those in the New Testament church to love, encourage, honor, accept, serve, teach, admonish, submit to, be kind and compassionate to, live in harmony with, and be humble before “one another.” God’s will for us as Jesus-followers is to love one another the way He loves us. Any time we find ourselves tempted to pass judgment, we should take an inward look at our own sin and shortcomings. We “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:23). Jesus came to reconcile us to the Father. He was the sacrifice for our sins and all the sins of the world. Instead of passing judgment, remember the “one another” exhortations of Paul. Humbly strive for unity, and “be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith,” (Rom 1:12).
