Pray in Holy Spirit Builds Faith

Jude 20
"But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith praying in the Holy Spirit."

Here is the context of this verse.
v19 Contrast yourself from people of the flesh
v21 keep yourself in the love of God.

Pray under anointing of Holy Spirit.
Pray under influence of Holy Spirit - tongues
Praying in tongues, knowing you will be built up
Pray in tongues with attitude of worship.

Faith is built
Holy - faith is about God's purpose
v 16-19 don't:
find fault,
follow your lust
speak arrogantly
don't flatter
cause division
worldly minded
devoid of Spirit
instead remember the Scriptures

But (the first word of the verse) is a contrast of verses 16-19. The context is staying away from quenching the Spirit, so repent, pick up your cross, pray in the Holy Spirit allowing the Spirit to flow.

We flow with the Spirit as the love of God moves us.
