One Anothers

Below are 59 “one another” statements in the New Testament.
  • These are biblical exhortations that, when practiced, have a tremendous impact on our relationships with other believers.
  • These are behaviors we may do out of an overflow of our relationship with Jesus, but they are not things that we do solely unto Jesus. Other people must be involved in order to fulfill them.
  • Being in a Growth Group helps us establish “one another” relationships!


“The primary activity of the church was one-anothering one another.

 “When everyone is sitting in rows…you can’t do any one anothers.”
