One Another Study Guide
A Guide for Strengthening God-Given Relationships
by Paul Chappell
Deep in the heart of every human is a desire for community. God designed us to be relational beings and wants us to experience abundant, life-giving relationships. The reality of relationships in today’s society, however, strays far from this ideal. Homes become more like battlegrounds than bastions of refuge. Churches flounder in discord when they should flourish in unity. Social media thrives on people jostling to make a point rather than yielding to make a personal connection.
One wonders: Is it possible to build quality, meaningful relationships in a world rife with tension and conflict? Can broken relationships be restored? The answer is a definite yes. Relationships are God’s precious gifts to us and the channel through which we communicate His love. As believers, we are not isolated individuals but members of the body in Christ with specific roles to play in ministering to one another.
In this ten-lesson study, discover powerful truths from the “one another” passages of the New Testament and learn God’s divine plan for cultivating healthy, godly relationships. Learn how you can develop meaningful relationships by loving, encouraging, and building up one another in the faith.
