Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth. - 2 Tim 2:15
THERE IS ONE FAITH
In the church that Jesus is building there is "one faith".
This is quite shocking when we see the major doctrinal divisions people
have camped behind. A true test of becoming one as Jesus and the Father
are one, is our willingness to repent from wrong doctrine and believe
the Word of God as it is written.
One of the signs of a mature church arising is that "we all come to the unity of the faith" Ephesians 4:13. The faith is speaking of the truth of the gospel. Jude exhorts us "to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints" v.3. The faith is "the faith of Jesus" (Rev.14:12) and "Through Him [Christ Jesus] we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name" Romans 1:5.
The name of Jesus is glorified by nations becoming obedient to the
faith! The work of discipleship is to bring nations to obey the faith!
This is why Jesus told us to, make disciples of all nations...teaching
them to observe all that I commanded you..." Matthew 28:19-20. The faith is everything that Jesus commanded us to observe!
The one faith we are to adhere to is "all that I [Jesus] commanded you..." Matthew 28:20. Jesus said, "My doctrine is not Mine but His who sent Me" John 7:16. Jesus spoke the doctrine He received from His Father. This doctrine was alive, not a list of doctrinal statements. In fact, the doctrine of Christ Jesus was so powerful that the people were amazed at the authority it came with saying, "What new doctrine is this? For with authority, He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him" Mark 1:27.
