SERVING ONE ANOTHER (4)
How about “submitting to one another” (Ephesians 5:21)? We would rarely put that in the same category as “serving”, but serving others must be done with genuine submission, and that requires humility. Paul says “in humility count others more significant than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3).
If we are going to serve one another effectively, submission and humility must become part of our inner fabric. This is not to be confused with submitting to error which Paul did not do (Galatians 2:5). Where there is a ‘body building, strengthening, encouraging’ mindset, there will be no room for undercurrents, gossip or divisive activity. Serving one another through submission and humility will also promote maturity (Ephesians 4:11-16).
