Godliness teaches us to say “NO” to ungodliness. It enables us to be spiritual beings who live a self-controlled upright life for God. God seeks people of godliness whose purpose and living are centered on God, rather than worldly passions. Yielding ourselves to godliness will modify our personality. It will strengthen us to be faithful to our calling and doing the good works for which we were saved.
According, to 2 Peter 1.3 “His DIVINE POWER has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” we don’t need any special talent or equipment but rather God’s divine power that supernaturally works in us. God has given to each one of us EVERYTHING WE ARE IN NEED FOR a wonderful godly LIFE now and forever.
What do you think of godliness? Some of you use expressions like love, care and all sort of human concerns. However, godliness is the foundation on which godly character is built, such as fear of God, love of God and desire of God. God’s concerns are much more than any of the human concerns such as mere approaches of human love and cares. Yet, godliness is the godlikeness and Christ like attitude that really Carries each other’s burden and do good and behave well with others. Bible says be merciful so that you will get mercy (Mathew 5.7). If God has forgiven us we ought to forgive others and bear each other’s burden. Let us discover more depths on godliness as you flick on the pages of this edition.
