Built Up in Christ

Take a look at Paul’s words in Acts 20:32. “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.”

How are we “built up?” We are “built up” by the letter of the Word of God, in the power of the Spirit of grace, ministered in love. We are not to be concerned with knowledge alone, for only the Spirit of God can convey the truth about knowledge.

Before we effectively minister to others, we must first learn to keep ourselves in the love of God. “Expect and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Jude 21, Amplified).

Build yourself up in the most holy faith (2). Keep yourself in the love of God, and unconditional love will produce pure grace in transitional processes. Continue to pray in the Holy Spirit and look for God’s mercy – always look for mercy! Build yourself up in the Word of Grace.
