Follow Me In The Pursuit Of Godliness

Pursuit Of Godliness

Return to:  Christian Articles

The pursuit of Godliness is the theme of this article. So join me while I go right to 1 Timothy 6:6 to learn how to become more Godly: “Now godliness with contentment is great gain.”

God’s Contentment Over Man’s

How many people today are really content–thankful with their lives and how things are going for them? Well, for those who are not, they can be because Timothy tells us that to be Godly is to be content! How blessed we are that Godliness coupled with contentment is great gain. Not just gain, but GREAT gain!

Over and over in Scripture, God highlights the importance and reward of godliness. For instance, it says in Psalm 4:3, That the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly. 2 Peter says the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations. Those are great rewards!

But there is more. Look at 1 Timothy 4:7-8But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.

It could not be more clear! There is profit in godliness, and that profit is not only in this life, but in the life that is to come. Godliness is going to pay off in both this life and into eternity!

So it makes sense to make this pursuit of godliness a priority! Even if people want to kick you every time you do something that is right, you need to stay with it.

Determine today to make godliness an everyday pursuit. If you do, you will reap the rewards of godliness, great gain and profit, not just in this life, but for eternity.

How Can The Pursuit Of Godliness Be Achieved and Maintained?

Study God’s Word and Obey it as you learn it. This will give you faith and trust in God to take care of your every need. Thus, great contentment!
