Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Bruce Kemper:

    Each of us, as members of the Body of Christ, has been given at least one spiritual gift. Besides this, there are the natural abilities with which God has endowed us. He intends these to primarily be used for the edification of the Body of believers. There is no such thing as a private gift (Rom. 126-8).

  2. Emeasoba George:

    God edifies whoever that magnifies him via praises. That is to say, magnification evokes edification. Therefore, you've got to magnify God if you've not been doing so. Because, if you dare to magnify him (God). He will definitely edify you. I mean, he (God) will reciprocally build you up like a house. Oh! yes, he can and he will. As a matter of fact, king David magnified him all his lifetime and due to that, he built him up like a house. That is why he (God) made him (David) the most celebrated king of Israel. Moreover, God took David to be the only man after his own heart. Now at this juncture, I hope you should have found a single reason why you should magnify God hence forth. For, he is ever ready to edify you even more than he edified King David. -Emeasoba George
