But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. Jude 1:20-21 (ESV)
Built Up In Your Faith
You can take steps with me to build yourself up in your faith. How so? Are you mildly curious or is being built up in your faith in me a priority in your life? I am not mildly curious about being built up in my faith in you. Living in an intimate relationship with you is the priority of my life. I want to know you. I want to love and follow and serve you. I want to live my life with and for you. I want to go and do whatever you ask of me. I want to live a life filled with faith in you. That is very good. Being mildly curious or being half-heartedly interested in being built up in your faith will be of no benefit to you. Of that, I have no doubt. That’s good.
What steps will you take so you can be built up in your faith? I will seek you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I will draw near to you in worship. I will meet with you in your word. I will pray in the Spirit all the prayers that you give me to pray. I will follow you to wherever you lead me. I will do whatever you ask of me. I will be at your service. I will allow you to work in and through me. I will allow you to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans that you have in mind for my life. I will place all my faith and hope and trust in you. I will join you in the work that I see you doing all around me. That is an important thought. That is a key word. What is an important thought and key word? Seeing is an important thought and key word. Keep your eyes open. Focus your attention on me. See what I am doing and join me. I will give you prayers to prayer. I will guide you to where you should go. I will give you what you should do. Love, follow and serve me. Then you will continually be built up in your faith. That I will do. That will be very good. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, I will take steps with you so you can build me up in my faith. I will meet with you in prayer and worship. I will meet with you in your word. I will go and do whatever you ask of me. Help me to live in an intimate relationship with you all the days of my life. Amen
