1 Timothy 4:8-9 “…Godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.”
We have been looking at these two verses for two weeks now. In doing so, we have seen the importance of how they can affect our life currently. Once again, I want to share with you that Godliness is the key to having what God desires for your life now. Godliness is simply doing what the Bible says to do in your everyday life. It starts by having a personal relationship with the Living God through the Lord Jesus Christ. Notice in the Scripture above, that it tells us that through Godliness we can experience a “profitable” life. One meaning of the word profitable is to be put into an advantaged place. Wouldn’t it be great if everything that we faced in life starts out with the knowledge that we have the advantage over everything! In Romans 8:31 the Spirit of God tells us through the Apostle Paul, “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
In closing, I want to encourage you to read Romans 8:31-39 and let God’s Word speak to you and into your life. Whenever we follow the Lord He always causes us to overcome!
It’s hard to come by knowledgeable people for this topic, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
