Serve One Another

September 13, 2020   /   First Baptist Russell

For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.  For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  Galatians 5:13-14 NASB

The basic concept of being a servant is used over times in the New Testament. Contrast that with the emphasis in society.

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.  2 Timothy 3:1 NASB


Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all, just as Jannes’s and Jambres’s folly was also.   2 Timothy 3:8-9 NASB

All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.  Isaiah 53:6 NASB


But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
2 Timothy 3:13 NASB
