Edification, Christian

Edification, or upbuilding, draws on the Pauline metaphor of the Church as the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 13:16), an edifice of living stones (Eph 4:1-6, 25-32). Each member of the Church contributes to the edification of other members through example, mutual support, and instruction.
