Title: Preferring One Another


1
Preferring One Another
  • Turn to
  • Romans 1210 151-3

2
Biblical Fact
  • You are either in the family of God or you are
    NOTthose are the only two divisions of people on
    the planet.

3
Last Week
  • Romans 1210
  • Be kindly affectioned one to another with
    brotherly love
  • in honor preferring one another

Two Major Directives
4
Our Goal
  • Love each other in the same way brothers and
    sisters love in a family. This means we will
    prefer one another!

5
Our Text Verse
  • Romans 1210
  • Be kindly affectioned one to another with
    brotherly love
  • in honour preferring one another

Is this an isolated directive?
6
Question
  • Before I make a big deal of the application of
    this verse can I find this truth throughout the
    Bible?

7
Turn to
  • Romans 137

8
Turn to
  • Romans 147-8

9
Turn to
  • Romans 151-3

10
Philippians 23
  • Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory
    but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other
    better than themselves.
  • Look not every man on his own things, but every
    man also on the things of others.

11
1 Peter 217
  • Honor all men.
  • Love the brotherhood.
  • Fear God.
  • Honor the king.

12
Finallyjust the Opposite
  • 1 Timothy 521
  • I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus
    Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe
    these things without preferring one before
    another, doing nothing by partiality.

13
Application
Question How deep and how wide and how long is
the application of in honor preferring one
another?
14
Application
  • Preferring One Another
  • Spouse
  • Immediate Family
  • Church Family
  • Extended Family
  • All Men

15
Marriage
  • wives should submit to their husbands. Husbands
    love your wives, as Christ loved the church Eph
    524-25

This is In honor preferring one another.
16
In the Marriage
  • 1 Peter 37
  • Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according
    to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as
    unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs
    together of the grace of life that your prayers
    be not hindered.

17
Application
In the Marriage
Husbands
Wives
18
Ephesians 525
  • Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also
    loved the church, and gave himself for it

The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ is the
ultimate in preferring one another!
19
Application
  • Dads
  • How do you honor and prefer your children above
    yourself?

20
Application
  • Genesis 131-9

21
Application
What does preferring one another look like in
the family of God?
22
Look Back at
  • Romans 124-6ff

23
Application
In what tangible ways do you honor and prefer
others in the body of Christ? Can we all agree
that weekly attendance of 1 hour on the pew does
not equal in honor preferring one another?
24
Question
  • Is it possible to honor and prefer others without
    sacrificing something?

25
Question
  • How is giving to the church preferring one
    another?
  • See Vs. 13

26
Romans 1213
  • Distributing contribute to the necessity of
    saints
  • be given to hospitality.

27
Question
  • How does in honor preferring one another relate
    to behavioral choices?

28
Two Options
  • Try to prescribe rules for all questionable
    issues not clearly outlined in the Bible.
  • Make gray area choices based on biblical
    principles like in honor preferring one another.

29
Application
How does in honor preferring one another relate
to women adorn themselves in modest apparel?
30
1 Timothy 29-10
  • In like manner also, that women adorn themselves
    in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and
    sobriety not with broided hair, or gold, or
    pearls, or costly array
  • But (which becometh women professing godliness)
    with good works.

31
Defining Modest
  • observing the proprieties of dress and behavior
  • decent

Q Who decides what is modest?
32
Question
  • Can we agree upon some standards of modesty when
    it comes to preferring our brothers in Christ?

33
Swimming Attire
  • Men
  • Speedo bikini trunks
  • Women
  • 2 piece bikini suit

Are either of these bathing suits helping our
brother (or sister) keep a pure thought life?
34
Someone Says
  • Now the Lord is that Spirit and where the Spirit
    of the Lord is, there is liberty (freedom).

35
Application
What happens when my freedom to wear a two piece
bikini bathing suit becomes a stumbling block to
my brother in Christ? Am I willing to honor and
prefer my brother above myself?
36
Someone from a pew says
  • I dont want to be in a legalistic church where
    there isnt freedom.

37
Translation
  • I dont want to have to prefer my brother over
    myself.

38
Galatians 513
  • For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty
  • only use not liberty for an occasion to the
    flesh,
  • but by love serve one another.

Lets look at the next verse.
39
Galatians 514
  • For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in
    this
  • Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

This means If I were in my neighbors
situation, gender, capacity, etc. how would I
want to be treated?
40
Another Issue
  • Alcohol Consumption

41
Only Two Options
Alcohol Course of Action 1 I choose to
completely abstain.
Alcohol Course of Action 2 I will be
exceptionally careful, selective, and very
limited so as to never create a chance to offend
a brother (or sister) or hurt my Christian
testimony.
42
Conclusion
Where do you need to honor and preferring one
another?
