This sermon series looks at several (but not all!) of the many questions Jesus asks people in the New Testament. These questions can help us examine the current state of our faith and lives and help us see and approach Jesus in a new way.

  • Part 1 – What do You Want? (John 1:35-41)
  • Part 2 – Why Do You Worry? (Matthew 6:25-34)
  • Part 3 – For You, Personally (Mark 10:46-52)
  • Part 4 – Why Are You Afraid? (Mark 4:35-41)
  • Part 5 – Why Do You Need a Miracle? (Mark 8:11-13)
  • Part 6 – Why Do You Doubt? (Luke 24:35-43)
  • Part 7 – You’ve Got a Little Something, Just There. (Matthew 7:1-5)
  • Part 8 – Why Question Jesus? (John 18:19-24)

This sermon series looks at several (but not all!) of the many “one another” passages in the New Testament. How can we effectively care for one another and so show the world that we are truly disciples of Jesus?

There is also a practical component to this sermon series. Here is a description from Pastor Ryan:

Adele Calhoun, in her book Spiritual Disciplines Handbook: Practices that Transform Us, offers several suggestions to help put living the “one another’s” into practice. I’d like to suggest this one to you:

“Choose a “one another” that you want to become a hallmark of your life. Consider why this “one another” is important to you. Picture what practising the “one another” will cost you. It could cost you time, money and a variety of self-indulgent moods and behaviors. Commit yourself to practising the “one another” every day for two weeks. At the end of each day, notice where you lived your “one another.” Where did you not live your “one another”? Seek grace to continue to incarnate Christ’s self-donating love. At the end of two weeks, consider whether or not you should dedicate two more weeks to intentionally living your “one another”. Do you feel called to move on to a different one?”

Pastor Ryan covered nine “one anothers” in this series. There are many more in the New Testament Epistles (letters)! Try a search for “one another” in Bible Gateway to find more of them. Use the links to the books of the Bible in the right sidebar to narrow your search to the Epistles.
