I am pictured above with my friend Mike from Reserve, NM. Mike is now attending College in Wisconsin! PTL!
Most of us are familiar with the “one another” commands of the New Testament. In the study guide for Gospel in Life: Grace Changes Everything, Tim Keller offers a helpful taxonomy under the categories of affirming one another, sharing with one another, and serving one another. These form, he says, “nine ‘community-building practices’—specific behaviors that build Christian community.” For a more detailed unpacking of each point, see pp. 58-71.
1. Affirm one another’s strengths, abilities, and gifts.
2. Affirm one another’s equal importance in Christ.
3. Affirm one another through visible affection.
4. Share one another’s space, goods, and time.
