One Another Verses in the Bible

January 4, 2013

Those who believe in Jesus Christ have been “born again” as Scripture teaches in John 3:3. This means that the old way of life, filled with sin and selfishness that leads to death, is gone and the new way of life, that is characterized by a love for God and love for others, has come.

Christians have a new relationship with God and a new relationship with each other. It should be of no surprise that the New Testament is filled with commands on how we are to treat one another.

Here is a list of the “One Another” commands in the Bible:

Be at peace with one another – Mark 9:50
Love one another – John 13:34; Romans 12:10; 1 Peter 4:8; 1 John 3:11, 23; 4:7, 11, 12

Be of the same mind toward one another – Romans 12:16

Greet one another – Romans 16:16
Esteem others as better than yourself – Philippians 2:3

Receive one another – Romans 15:7
Be devoted to one another – Romans 12:10
Rejoice or weep with one another – Romans 12:15
Admonish one another – Romans 15:14; Colossians 3:16
Care for one another – 1 Corinthians 12:25
Show tolerance toward one another – Romans 15:1-5; Ephesians 4:2; Colossians 3:13
Be kind and forgiving to one another – Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:13
Submit to one another – Romans 12:10; Ephesians 5:21; 1 Peter 5:5

Encourage one another – 1 Thessalonians 5:11; Hebrews 3:13
Be compassionate with one another – 1 Peter 3:8

Confess your faults to one another – James 5:16
