Romans 15:22 a Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.
1 Corinthians 10:3333just as b I try to please everyone in everything I do, c not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.
1 Corinthians 14:12-1712So with yourselves, since you are eager for manifestations of the Spirit, strive to excel in building up the church. 13Therefore, one who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret. 14For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful. 15What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; d I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will e sing with my mind also. 16Otherwise, if you give thanks with your spirit, how can anyone in the position of an outsider ▼
▼Or of him that is without giftssay g “Amen” to h your thanksgiving when he does not know what you are saying? 17For you may be giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not being built up.
1 Corinthians 14:26
Orderly Worship26What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has i a hymn j a lesson k a revelation l a tongue, or m an interpretation. n Let all things be done for building up.
Ephesians 4:2929 o Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give p grace to those who hear.
1 Thessalonians 5:11-1211Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
Final Instructions and Benediction12We ask you, brothers, q to respect those who labor among you and r are over you in the Lord and admonish you,
1 Timothy 1:44nor s to devote themselves to myths and endless t genealogies, which promote u speculations rather than the stewardship ▼
▼Or good orderfrom God that is by faith.
