I Corinthians 11:1-2
Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ. Now I praise you because you remember me in everything, and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you.
This is God’s plan for the spreading of the gospel for each generation. Those who are established in the faith are to share their faith with others. The truth of the gospel is that Jesus is the promised Messiah, sent by God to us to be our sacrifice for sin once for all.
We are to hold fast to the precepts, the substance of the true teaching about Christ and His resurrection (translated here “traditions”). Many people today have deviated from the truth of the gospel, laid out clearly in the Bible, in order to fit a certain doctrine or view.
If we went back to what the Bible said, we could begin to be as one just as Jesus prayed for us in John 17:21. That scripture reads, “that they may be one; even as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be in Us, that the world may continually believe that Thou didst send Me.”
Father God, may we know the truth taught to us by the Holy Spirit,
as we read Your word and seek Your face.
May we come together as one with You and Jesus
so the world may know Jesus is the Messiah sent for salvation.
