Week of November 03, 2014
Exceeding Grace Greetings!
Welcome to the month of November, I am very much persuaded that this month will be a great month for you and will be very much better than the first ten months of this year. The focus this week is “Godliness.”.
According to Paul’s writing to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:8, he made it clear that godliness profits us in this present world and also in the world to come –ETERNITY.
No one profits or becomes great in the Kingdom of God without living a godly life but in order to live a godly life, we need an inward foundation of God-centeredness. It is upon this foundation, that an outward structure of godliness is built. The foundation is composed of three essential elements:
- The fear of God
- The love of God
- The desire for God
All these focus on God; and when they are in place, living a godly lifestyle will not be a struggle.
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” 2 Peter 1:3 – KJV
God has given each of us everything we need for life and godliness, so it is left to us to make a decision and take responsibility to live a godly life, even as we engage the ministry of the Holy Spirit for grace and help.
Godliness is profitable unto all things.
God bless you.
