Discipleship – One Another

Jon Keel

I know that we are not meant to do life alone! I would not be the person I am today without people who realised that we need “one another”.
In the New Testament you will find the phrase “one another” appears 100 times!

“One another” is derived from the Greek word allelon. Many times when it appears in the Bible it is a specific command for the followers of Jesus.

“One Another” Bible Verses

Here is a list of some of the verses that tell us how to relate to one another, how to exist as a community and how to have Christ-centred relationships.

Discipleship – One Another

My walk with God has been impacted and affected by people who have put into practice this call to ‘one another’

Steve was my youth leader… He showed up week after week and tried to get a bunch of teenagers to show some interest in God.

James took me under his wing at a Scripture Union camp. He encouraged me, gave responsibility and invested time in me

David taught me what a life-long faithful pursuit of Jesus looked like.

Johnny cheered me on, was in my corner and has never stopped.

Sam and I travelled the world together serving Jesus as we went. We were honest with one another, dreamt kingdom dreams, kept each other accountable, confessed sin and shared in each other’s joys and burdens.

Joan displayed radical generosity when we were in need. She prayed constantly and cared deeply

Chris spoke prophetically over my life. We talked about the challenges and joys of pastoral ministry and he lifted me up in prayer

All of these people have made an impact in my life and my following of Jesus. We stir faith up in one another, we sow into one another and I am convinced that we all need people to do the same. We need “one another” ….

Thoughts To Consider

Who are the people who have impacted your walk with Jesus?

How can you display the ‘one another’ commands in your relationships?

Who could you ask to sow into you, encourage, challenge, teach or disciple you?

Who are you investing into? How are you being ‘one another’ to others?

About The Series

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

Being a disciple is a life-long, journey of pursuing Jesus. In this series, we’ll explore what Jesus called His first disciples to be and ask how we can become and grow as disciples in our lives today. 

In a world where everything is quick and immediate, we ask what the long walk of following Jesus looks like. We’ll look at the call to be a disciple, the community of disciples, the cost of discipleship and the commission of the disciple. The journey of discipleship is to pursue Jesus in every part of our lives and become a disciple who makes other disciples.
