Being Built Up in FAITH and HOPE and LOVE

October 21, 2009

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Jude 20

Jesus has prepared heaven for you! (John 14)

Jesus is preparing you for heaven! (2 Corinthians 4:16)

Jesus loves you and has given Himself for you! (John 3:16)

“Do you not know the power of His love? What does the world think of a love that never shows itself in action? Who will accept a love that does not actuate you to self-denial, generosity, and the zeal of serving Jesus? Is the love of Jesus like a rushing mighty wind to your soul sweeping out your worldliness? It is the power of His love that will usher in the divine rapture, to bear you aloft from the earth. It is His love in the divine Spirit that will make you right now bold as lions and swift as eagles in your Lord’s service.

In building yourselves up be resolute and determined to be pressing on towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.(Philippians 3:13-14)

Charles H. Spurgeon

Many Christians remain dwarfed in spiritual things, having the same appearance year after year. No advancement of faith, hope, and love is manifested in them. Such Christians are satisfied with no desire to experience the fullness to be found in abiding with Christ Jesus and to be enriched in knowledge of Him. To abide with Jesus is to hold daily communion with Him, bearing the fruit of the Holy Spirit to others. (John 15)

As you come near Jesus in all things (Ephesians 4:15) you will find yourself advancing in faith, hope, and love.”

But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

1Corinthians 13:13
