2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

A single holiday in the Christian calendar

The Lord has never asked us to celebrate annually his birth nor to celebrate annually his resurrection, but he expressed His desire that we celebrate the memorial of His death. Every first day of the week (Acts 20:7), the day of Its resurrection, the day of the new creation, supplies suitably the occasion to those who are new creatures in Christ to meet in His invaluable Name only (Matthew 18:20), outside the camp (systems adapted to what pleases the man) (Hebrews 13:13), to announce " the death of the Lord until He comes " " make this... in memory of Me " (1 Corinthians 11:25-26).

Acts 20:7

7 And on the first day of the week, when we were assembled together to break bread [the Lord's Supper], Paul discoursed with them, intending to leave the next morning; and he kept on with his message until midnight. AMP

Matthew 18:20

20 For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them. [Exodus 3:14.] AMP

Hebrews 13:13

13 Let us then go forth [from all that would prevent us] to Him outside the camp [at Calvary], bearing the contempt and abuse and shame with Him. [Leviticus 16:27.] AMP

1 Corinthians 11:25-26

25 Similarly when supper was ended, He took the cup also, saying, This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.

26 For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are representing and signifying and proclaiming the fact of the Lord's death until He comes [again]. AMP
