Godliness: Leads to Salvation

 

godliness

Godliness

the quality or state of being spiritually pure or virtuous

1 Timothy 4

7 But reject those myths fit only for the godless and gullible, and train yourself for godliness.

8 For “physical exercise has some value, but godliness is valuable in every way. It holds promise for the present life and for the life to come.”

To be God liked is greater than any like we may ever receive. We all strive to be liked by others, however, to be liked by God is what matters most.

How can we be liked by God?

Confess His Name

Accept Him in Our Hearts

Receive Eternal Salvation

Do all three and see Him work in your life. Let him frame you into a godly person. Let your actions show your godliness so you can lead others to be liked by God. Let your life be the example that leads others to eternal salvation.

Today’s Verse

2 Peter 1

5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge; 

 to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; 

Grow in Knowledge

As we grow in knowledge of the Word of God, we are challenged to add more to our plate. We are given more responsibility. As we face each day, we are to practice what we have learned. We are to exemplify with our actions our faith, our knowledge, and our self-control.

Add Perseverance

Now, we must add perseverance. We must continue to be in a state of grace. We must be persistent in our purpose to overcome difficulties, obstacles, and discouragement. We must endure our trials. We must not give up.

Shield Ourselves

Like the saying, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going,” we must shield ourselves with the armor of God and face all that comes our way. When trials and tribulations arise, we must cling on to the Word of God. Allow trust and faith to carry us through. Allow God to be in control.
