"But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourself in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life."
This is profound instruction from the half brother of Jesus, Jude. We must keep our faith built up by praying in the Holy Spirit. We know we are praying the perfect prayer when praying in the Spirit. It increases our sensitivity to His Spirit. Then we are to keep ourselves bathed in His love. It is a perfect, holy, pure love. It causes us to anxiously await being united with all that is good, pure, and holy for all of eternity. What a wonderful future to come!
Next to keeping myself in the love of God is keeping myself in the love of children.
