CHRISTIANS-We are Here for One Another

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Rom 12:10 NIV

Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.  
Rom 12:16 NIV

Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way. Rom 14:13 NIV

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

I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, complete in knowledge and competent to instruct one another.  Rom 15:14 NIV

You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. Gal 5:13 NIV

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Eph 4:2 NIV

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Eph 4:32 NIV

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Eph 5:21 NIV

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.  Heb 3:13
