Build up your inheritance! (Acts 20:32)

“Now I commend you

To the Lord

And to the message

Of his grace,

That is able

To build you up

And give you

The inheritance

Among all those

Who are sanctified.”

καὶ τὰ νῦν παρατίθεμαι ὑμᾶς τῷ Κυρίῳ καὶ τῷ λόγῳ τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ τῷ δυναμένῳ οἰκοδομῆσαι καὶ δοῦναι τὴν κληρονομίαν ἐν τοῖς ἡγιασμένοις πᾶσιν.

The author of Acts indicated that Paul said that now he was commending them (καὶ τὰ νῦν παρατίθεμαι ὑμᾶς) to the Lord (τῷ Κυρίῳ) and to the message of his grace (καὶ τῷ λόγῳ τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ), that was able (τῷ δυναμένῳ) to build them up (οἰκοδομῆσαι) and give them (καὶ δοῦναι) the inheritance (τὴν κληρονομίαν) among all those who were sanctified (ἐν τοῖς ἡγιασμένοις πᾶσιν).  Paul was committing them to the Lord and his grace.  Thus, God would build them up to give them the inheritance for those who were sanctified or saved.  Do you rely on the Lord to build you up spiritually?
