He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church (1 Corinthians 14:4).

Every Christian should learn to edify himself in the Spirit. The word, “edify” means to charge up or to motivate your spirit in taking prompt actions. A Christian needs to constantly edify himself in order not to be weak and dull in the Spirit. In the opening text, Apostle Paul said that he who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. One of the major ways to edify yourself in the Spirit is to speak in tongues always. Tongue is one of the major instruments for the edification of the believer in the Lord.

A Christian should never allow his spirit to be weak and dull no matter the challenges and situations of life. When your spirit is weak and dull, you become powerless and easy prey to the devil. That is why the Bible says in Ephesians 5:18, “And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit.” Whenever a Christian prays and speaks in tongues, he is charging up himself in the Holy Ghost. As a Christian, learn to edify yourself by speaking in tongues constantly.

When a Christian is weak in the Spirit, he easily falls into temptations, trials and challenges of life. That is the reason why the Bible admonishes in Jude 1:20, “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.” It is the will of God for you to pray in the Holy Spirit by building up yourself in the Spirit. Therefore, be encouraged to pray in tongues always in order to edify yourself in the Holy Spirit. Learning to pray in tongues constantly is therefore mandatory for all Christians who want to build themselves up in the Spirit of the Lord.

Daily Tip: Learn to edify and build yourself up in the Holy Spirit by praying in tongues always. Shalom!
