BUILD UP YOUSELF IN YOUR MOST HOLY FAITH.
We’ve been justified by faith in Christ Jesus, so we need to build up ourselves in order to grow stronger in the faith.
We build up ourselves through the help of the Holy Spirit. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is very important in the life of every Christian.
Praying in the Holy Ghost is one of the ways in which we can build up ourselves in our most holy faith (Jude 1 vs. 20).
Building up yourself requires a gradual process. Let’s use a practical example; if I buy a piece of land and want to build a house, I don’t expect the building to be completed in a day that sounds absurd. Building a house requires different stages which always start from the foundation.
Also, it is impossible for one person to build a house without the help of anyone. This is impossible because the work load will be too cumbersome for him/her.
Comparing this analogy to our Christian faith implies that we need the help of the Holy Spirit and other believers, in order to build up ourselves. This is why the bible encouraged us to pray in the Holy Ghost, and to never forsake the Christian brethren.
#Pray Holy spirit help me to always rely on you for help and help me to build up myself to your glory.
