In my “A Lesson From Psalm 23:4” blog, I was left to wonder the actual conversation over the third question about the affect of the fear of social status. I asked a fellow attendee of said bible study and he reminded me that there was something said about humans being made for relationships. I sent a text through Skype to ask the leader of Third Place if this was in fact what he said and if he had any additional notes or verses to add. The pastor affirmed that he did “and does” teach that and even added several verses to support the subject.
While I did reference what the verses said via the (abbr) tag, I wanted to make a separate page citing the verses for those on mobile devices. The (abbr) tag is short for “abbreviation” and allows one to view titles while hovering over the highlighted text with a mouse. From what I’ve noticed, this is not possible on tablet nor mobile phone so I created a separate page where the verses recorded will be properly cited.
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Jn 13:34–35.
12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Jn 15:12.
8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), Ro 13:8.
16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), 1 Jn 4:16.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Pr 3:3.
2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Eph 4:2.
8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), 1 Pe 4:8.
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Heb 10:24–25.
There are two verses quoted here because, in the Skype message, two verses were referred to but only verse twenty-four was quoted. Likely because verse twenty-five has very little to do with the subject my pastor was affirming but quoted here because, “why not?”
14 Do everything in love.
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), 1 Co 16:14.
These verses have all been cited in Turabian Style format. That was the format used at the Bible college I attended so consider it sentimental.
Furthermore, I acknowledge that most of these verses have been cited from the New International Version but one from the English Standard Version. To be honest, each was quoted from the translation from which they were first sent to me. I already edited the quotations into the (abbr) tag before citing them. I’d think it would be too much of a hassle to go back and change each verse to my own preferred translation: New American Standard Bible. Each verse quotes the translation I quoted in the blog; deal with it.
Anyway, here‘s a link back to the study.
