We all strive for unity in various relationships, but we often ignore direct instruction given in Scripture on how to treat others. Grace in Empty Spaces
is an excellent small group study that will teach those principles and give practical instruction on how instructions found in Scripture should impact every life. This six-week study covers the following familiar "one-another" passages of Scripture:
- Love One Another
- Forgive One Another
- Submit to One Another
- Pray for One Another
- Fellowship with One Another
- Minister to One Another
This isn't just another Bible study. It's a One-Another study, and that makes it as special as your best friend or worst enemy. The One Another passages of the Bible are written to tell us how to get along when we'd rather fuss and how to mutually care for those around us as Christ would if He were still here in the flesh. In His eyes, any two Christians on earth, whenever they meet, are instantly one-anothered. Mark McPeak's study of one another insights will encourage you day by day as you read one, and then another.

Going from belief in and acceptance of Christ as Lord to behaving like Christ is no easy transformation. God has given us a great instructional book, the Bible, to help us do that. Grace in the Empty Spaces gives great direction and insight into what every believer in Christ should do to become more like Him by making the connection between daily living and the truth of Scripture. Any book or resource that draws people into the Word of God is a good thing.

A word that is often on the lips of Christians today is that they wish to be independent. In the Western world we live in the most lonely society on planet earth. If you plant independence you reap loneliness. This study reveals the reality that if we truly want to know the community that Jesus planned for His people and that the Word of God so clearly teaches, then we must study the "one another" passages and thus fill the gap that so many are experiencing. I commend a serious study of these powerful phrases, which God Himself assures us will transform relationships.

This study is refreshingly relentless in exploring the riches of love and how to live it out in community. The chapters so build on each other, it's like wave after wave of biblical truth toppling down the castles of petty self we have so carefully built. It is difficult to imagine that any person or group could carefully and prayerfully go through these studies without being deeply affected.
