Matthew Study begins tomorrow

As I sit here tonight praying and preparing for tomorrow's bible study I decided to peruse some of my favorite sights and blogs. I am feeling a little nervous about tomorrow, hoping it goes well, wondering if I prepared enough, and wanting to know the ladies will be blessed by the gospel of Jesus, written by Matthew, as I have been so far. As I was reading one of my favorite blogs, I came across these scriptures and decided to share them with you. I Hope these verses regarding our church fellowship bless you as much as they blessed me, and also encourage us to love one another as Jesus commanded! Happy Reading:

We love one another (John 13:34, 1 John 3:11) because God is love (1 John 4:8).
We fellowship with one another (1 John 1:7) because of the Trinitarian fellowship of our God (2 Cor. 13:14)
We forgive one another (Eph. 4:32) as God in Christ forgave us (Eph. 4:32).
We accept one another (Rom. 15:7) because we’re accepted by God in Christ (1 Peter 2:5).
We serve one another (1 Peter 4:10) as Jesus came to serve and give his life as our ransom (Mark 10:45).
We teach one another (Col. 3:16) because Jesus is the true word of God incarnate (John 1:14).
We are patient with one another (Eph. 4:2) because God’s kindness and patience leads to repentance (Rom. 2:4).
We bear one another's burdens (Gal. 6:2) as Christ Jesus bore our griefs and transgressions (Is. 53:4).
We pray for one another (James 5:16) as Christ did for us (John 17) and continues to do (Rom. 8:34).
We submit to one another (Eph. 5:21) as Jesus submitted to the will of the Father (Phil. 2).
We encourage one another and build one another up (1 Thess. 5:11) just as Jesus builds his church (Matt. 16:18).
