Making Time for One Another?Read verses with the “one-another” commands of Scripture and you’ll have to conclude that this kind of mutual, reciprocal relating takes time. Church leaders serious about following God’s design for interdependence among the Body must etch time for Body life into their busy schedules. And, they must structure to allow for it to happen within the hectic church-wide schedule.

How will we admonish one another (Col. 3:16), bear one another’s burdens (Gal. 6:2), build up each other (Rom. 14:19), care for one another (1 Cor. 12:25), and spur one another on (Heb. 10:24) if we haven’t taken time to learn each other’s needs?
