“Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.” 2 Thessalonians 2:15 (KJV)

Traditions are customs and practices from the past that are passed on as accepted standards of behavior for the present. The opening scripture reveals that there are customs and practices in the Kingdom of God that cannot be compromised; a conscious effort should be made to assimilate them and pass them to the next generation.

Apostle Paul wanted them to hold fast to the traditions pertaining to the second coming of Christ. The Thessalonians were taught extensively about the return of the Lord, and they were expected to keep refreshing themselves with the teachings in order not to forget.

Dear beloved, even Jesus Christ had a custom of going to the synagogue to participate in worship (Luke 4:16). There are traditions about the new birth, baptism, healing, righteousness, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and the second coming of Christ, which we have to keep reminding ourselves of in order not to forget them. Forgetting them will make us prone to deception. Let us keep these good traditions and be blessed. Hallelujah! God bless you!

Prayer Point: Dear Holy Spirit, Please keep reminding me of the good customs and practices in Christ in order to uphold them forever. Amen!
