Who Is My Brother?

What Makes Us Brethren?

  • By faith we have been baptized into Christ (Acts 2:37-38; Galatians 3:26-29; 1 Corinthians 12:13)
  • What if one does this but joins an institutional church or a denomination? Still a brother
  • What if one doesn’t do this, but is religious and claims belief in God/Jesus? Not a brother

Be Mindful of These Types of Brethren:

  • Weak brethren (1 Thessalonians 5:14)
  • Erring brethren (2 Thessalonians 3:6,14-15)
  • False brethren (Galatians 2:3-4)

Responsibilities as Brethren

  • Love one another (1 John 3:23; John 13:34-35)
  • Encourage one another (Hebrews 10:24-25; 1 Thessalonians 5:11)
  • Do good for one another (Galatians 6:10; Hebrews 13:16)
