1 JOHN 2:24-25

24 So you must remain faithful to what you have been taught from the beginning. If you do, you will remain in fellowship with the Son and with the Father. 25 And in this fellowship we enjoy the eternal life he promised us.

1 John 2:24-25

An important facet of our faith is permanence. This feature of an infinite God is something that sets him apart in a finite world. By extension, it’s part of what we partake in when we are adopted by him. To be godly, we must remember him. We must be steady in his path and hold fast to his teaching. When we neglect to do this, we cheapen the overall value of what he gives to us. We lie about God’s sovereignty in this world and throughout time. We are called to be permanent hands of Christ in this world. The way in which this plays out is the proffering of his ways, both in the mindset of his commands and the commands themselves. Those who claim to follow Christ but do not follow his mind or his action in basic principle are doing more than being bad Christians, they are falsely testifying about who God is. When a non-believer sees this type of example, they logically have no reason to believe in the gospel of Christ. To the contrary, they would be right to think that Jesus is not God.
