Build yourself and others up
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/15- “Building Holy Faith—Praying In The Holy Spirit!” (Jude 1:20-21)
Premise Question: Do we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, make it our common practice to build ourselves up in our most holy faith and are we faithfully praying in the Holy Spirit?
“But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.” (Jude 1:20-21 NLT)
But you, my dear friends, members all, of The Great Company of The Redeemed, and who do have complete access to the comfort, power and presence of The Holy Spirit, as He, The Spirit of Christ now dwells, residing deep within the within of your innermost being, don’t ever stop growing, developing and maturing in your sacred and most precious walk of faith. Therefore, don’t become lackadaisical or accept the status quo of mediocrity, but continue to faithfully utilize fully the power of The Holy Spirit, by making it your daily practice to rely upon, and to pray in, The Holy Spirit. Keep on practicing the presence of The LORD—loving and walking humbly before Him, loving and walking in release before all others, as you wait, with a patient calm assurance, for the all consuming, rescuing and redeeming, protective covering of the loving and merciful grace of our LORD and Savior—Jesus Christ, to transform, then transport you to your eternal abode; to forever be in the very presence of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. And that, without end! (Jude 1:20-21 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, must stay ever vigilant, with a deliberate diligence, to not ever become lackadaisical and then, as a direct result, slip into mediocrity, where our most holy faith stops growing and developing, and our practice of praying in the Holy Spirit wanes, to the point of no longer building ourselves up in spiritual maturity, but actually begins to diminish, atrophy and die. Don’t ever succumb to being just mediocre!
A very wise young man once said to me in a staff meeting: “Once you’ve licked the lollipop of mediocrity, you suck the rest of your life!”
Thanks, my son, Rob Cox. Something I’ll never forget and constantly remind myself of, as I daily give thanks, while awaiting the mercy of The LORD Jesus Christ, who will bring me eternal life, I will build myself and others up, on our most holy faith, by praying in The Holy Spirit, and thus, stay safe and secure, in the loving arms and care of Papa God’s unfailing love. Blessings…
