Is The New Testament Our Pattern?

By Steven J. Wallace

Man has always been held accountable to law from God. The New Testament is our law today and it serves as a pattern for us to follow. This pattern has been modeled in the example of Jesus Christ and further expounded on by the apostles. Those who teach otherwise have "turned aside to idle talk" and "understand neither what they say nor the things which they affirm" (1 Tim. 1:6, 7). There has never been a time when man was left to make up his own rules on how to live acceptably toward God. God has always revealed what He has expected of man. In faith man either responds in obedience or he responds in disobedience. Some try to add to the pattern which is equally sinful. We have no right add our preferences, opinions, or scruples to the gospel plan. Sin is committed when we become factious with personal opinions as well as being liberal unauthorized additions. Just take if for what it is and hold fast.

"Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus" (2 Timothy 1:13)

"Overcome Evil with Good"

Two builders build houses. Two lives are lived. One falls in the storm while the other one stands. What is the difference?



"The Syro-Phoenician Woman"

An old exhortation needs to be fresh in our daily activities--continue in the faith!


How To Call On The Lord To Be Saved?

It is a phrase which is often stated but one that is unlikely explained. You must "call on the name of the Lord" to be saved. But what does it mean? How do we call on the name of the Lord today?


This command was also unclear to many of the Jews in the first century. The apostle Peter was preaching the gospel to thousands on the day of Pentecost wherein he quoted from the prophet Joel, "And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved" (Acts 2:21).

After he testified against their deeds and after he gave irrefutable proof that Jesus was the Christ, the people were pierced to the heart and asked a very important question, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37). If they knew "how to call on the name of the Lord, they would not have asked, "what shall we do?"

The Plan of Salvation

Have you obeyed the gospel? Is the gospel to be obeyed and if so, what is required? We know the gospel is to be obeyed because Paul said of our Lord’s second coming,

“in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thess. 1:8).
