#15. Our Divine Commitment According to God’s Eternal Purpose • Message 1
There is often pressure on the churches to care for something other than the Lord’s testimony, such as certain practices, and to make those things our center of fellowship.
Therefore, in this conference Brother Titus’ burden was to remind us that, as believers in Christ individually and as the churches of Christ corporately, we should only care for and exhibit Christ Himself. How wonderful is this divine commitment!
In this message, he reviews the history of the church in Jerusalem, which had such a marvelous beginning, but then declined because some brothers focused on keeping the law. He then speaks of 1 John 2, and how the aged Apostle John reminds us that in all things, we must focus on having Christ Himself as our reality; otherwise, everything is vain.
