FORGIVE One Another

It’s _____ ONE ANOTHER WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re looking at how the Bible says we should fill in that blank.

Today’s word? FORGIVE. Here’s what the Bible says about that:

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4:2)

When I have trouble forgiving others, I try to remember two rather humbling stories. We’ve shared ’em before here on GUWG but I just loooooove ’em and think they’re worth repeating.

ENCOURAGE One Another

It’s _____ ONE ANOTHER WEEK here on GUWG, where each day we’re taking a look at how the Bible says we should fill in that blank.

Yesterday, we started with Jesus’ command to LOVE one another. Today’s blank-filler offers a concrete way to live that out.

Encourage one another and build each other up.
(1 Thessalonians 5:11)

How often should we encourage one another and why should we do it?

____ One Another

It’s _____ ONE ANOTHER WEEK here on GUWG.

Christianity is all about relationships: our relationship with (1) God and (2) others. That’s pretty much it.

So how exactly are we supposed to relate to our fellow earthlings, many of whom are nearly as messed up as we are? We’ll be answering that question all week long, as we look at how the Bible fills in the above blank.

Live a Life of Love

It’s SHARE YOUR FAITH WITHOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK here on GUWG.

Here’s one of my all-time favorite quotes from St. Francis of Assisi:

Proclaim the gospel at all times; when necessary, use words.

Accordingly, I’ll keep my blah blah blah to a minimum today. Instead, let’s focus on what the Bible says about this subject:

Do You Love Jesus?

It’s BIG QUESTIONS WEEK here on GUWG where all week long we’ve been looking at deep, thought-provoking ?s from the Bible.

Jesus was about to leave Earth. He grilled out with his disciples one last time and then he took Peter aside and asked him this question:

SPIRIT WEEK: Love

LOVE-ICONIt’s SPIRIT WEEK 2019 here on GUWG. For the next few days, we’ll be taking a closer look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: LOVE.

Why love? There’s a reason love is first on the list. At its heart, the Bible is one gigantic love-fest. In fact, God IS love. The Bible says:

Praying Hands

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15:13)

We continue our PRAYER-O-RAMA 2019 festivities with a little story about the painting to the right …

Two struggling art students, Albrecht Dürer and Franz Knigstein, were having trouble making ends meet. Albrecht came up with a plan: he would work to support Franz’s studies and then when Franz had sold enough art to support both of them, Albrecht would quit working and go back to school. Franz liked the idea but insisted on being the first to work.
