Paul tells his readers in 1 Corinthians 14:12 and again in Ephesians 4:12, among other places, the importance of building up the Church. The following are ten groups in the church and how they can help build her up.
1. Lukewarm members can FIRE UP.
2. Critics can SWEETEN UP.
3. Sleepers can WAKE UP.
4. Those absent can SHOW UP.
5. Those who know and love the Truth can SPEAK UP.
6. Those who are not getting along can MAKE UP.
7. Gossipers can SHUT UP.
8. Babes in Christ can begin to GROW UP.
9. The discouraged and faint hearted can, in Christ, CHEER UP.
And 10. Those who desire heaven can STAND UP.
