Commitment to the church

Ac 2:42; Eph 4:3–4; Col 3:15

Paul uses the picture of the body to describe the interdependence of believers:

Ro 12:4–10; 1 Co 12:12–27

Commitment to other Christians is an expression of love made known in Christ

Jn 13:34–35; Col 3:13–14; 1 Pe 1:22
See also Jn 15:12; Jn 15:17; Ro 12:10; Ro 12:16; Ro 13:8; Ga 5:13; Eph 4:32–5:2; 1 Th 3:12; 1 Th 4:9; 2 Th 1:3; Heb 13:1; 1 Pe 2:17; 1 Jn 3:11; 1 Jn 3:23; 1 Jn 4:7; 1 Jn 4:21; 1 Jn 5:2

Such commitment is expressed in mutual responsibility and concern

Ga 6:2; Heb 10:24–25; 1 Pe 3:8
See also Ro 14:13; Ro 15:7; Ro 15:14; 1 Co 1:10 Paul’s concern for unity among believers; Eph 5:21; Col 3:13 the responsibility of believers to forgive one another; Col 3:16; 1 Ti 5:11; Heb 3:13; Jas 4:11; 1 Pe 4:9; 1 Pe 5:5

For its leaders, commitment to the church may prove a joy and a burden

Ac 20:28 Paul speaking to the elders of the church at Ephesus; 2 Co 11:28
See also Col 1:24; 1 Th 2:8; 1 Th 5:12–13; 1 Ti 3:1; Heb 13:17; 1 Pe 5:1–3
