“But you dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.” Jude 20

God’s desire is that we be built up in the most holy faith – faith in the Gospel of Christ. We Christians should never become complacent believing that we are ‘okay’. Instead we are to seek to grow in grace and in the knowledge of Christ. In this life on earth, we grow and keep on growing.

And as, the growth in spiritual life is seen in our communication with God through our prayer life. We are to pray in the Holy Spirit. We are to pray in the power and prompting of the Holy Spirit.  More than that, I suggest the verse also remind us that we who are in Christ have been baptized into the Holy Spirit.  So in God we live, and move and have our being – our new life in Christ. Thus we are to constantly remember that our lives are hidden in the Spirit of Christ, and we are to keep our focus to what pleases God and not what our natural instincts desire.  So dear friends, be built up in your faith in Christ, and enjoy life in the Spirit of Christ!
