In this message, we are looking at the ways of God which He established for the success of our mission. As men creatively build their own church traditions they nullify the commands of Christ, weakening the church.
It is our duty to keep the God-given traditions in obedience to God’s wisdom and trust Him, even if do not understand the why of His direction, traditions, or structure.
“But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 14 to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle.” [2 Thess. 2:13-15 NKJV]
