Acts 14:21-22; 15:36
In any warfare, whether physical or spiritual, grounds won, if not consolidated, could be lost back to the enemy. We are in a spiritual warfare, (Eph. 6:12); Apostle Paul knowing this did many things to consolidate grounds he had won during his missionary evangelistic and pastoral out-reaches.
We must forthwith consolidate the ground that has been won else such grounds would sooner or later be sadly lost to the enemy. These include salvation, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Spirit, restoration from deterioration and/or backsliding, renewal or fervency of spirit, zeal, great insight and conviction into what the now and the near future hold; the innumerable and wonderful physical, material or economic outpouring of blessings from on high.
In other words, what do we do and continue to do in order to maintain and retain all the experiences or benefits we received for ourselves, families or family members?
The following are what must be done:
(1) Cherishing The Experiences Or Benefits Received
(2) Maintaining The Spiritual Exercises That Retain Experiences
(3) Keeping The Fire Burning
