Message 11: Transformation, Conformation, Glorification and Building Up

V. Building up
Ephesians 4:15–16 But holding to truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, Christ, 16 Out from whom all the Body, being joined together and being knit together through every joint of the rich supply and through the operation in the measure of each one part, causes the growth of the Body unto the building up of itself in love.
Ephesians 4:3 Being diligent to keep the oneness of the Spirit in the uniting bond of peace.

A. Building up is the God-men’s being joined and knit together with other God-men in the divine life by their growth in the divine life

B. Brought forth through the joining and knitting by the transforming Spirit—Eph. 4:3, 15–16

C. The building up of the Body of Christ in the New Testament is this kind of building up by being joined and knit together in the divine life, and its purpose is to consummate the building of the holy city, New Jerusalem
