Godliness

……….and to patience, godliness;……….
 Godliness is about Living a holy life 
God has called us to live a godly life. Godly life is a holy life, a life of
righteousness.
Godliness is being covered with the cloak of righteousness that Jesus has given us.
When you love God, your life serves as living a living proof.
The Apostles were called Christians because their lives were likened to that of
Jesus. They did not need to tell people they had been with Jesus; the people
saw it in them. Our lives are the living bibles people read whether we choose
to believe it or not. A godly person fears God.
 
 1Thessalonians 4:7  For God hath not called usunto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
 
Filthiness can keep us away from God. The devil has all the access into our lives when he smells our filth. Zechariah 3:1-4 
Joshua was a priest, but the devil withstood him. He had on him filthy garments.
There were issues in his life God had to deal with, iniquity. When God does not hear your prayers your iniquity may be hindering him from doing so (Proverbs 28:13).
In all our conversation, we should be holy.
 
1Peter 1:14-16  As obedient children, not fashioning
yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which
hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because
it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
 
A Godly woman is hard to come by.
It is not easy to live a Godly life.
Circumstances come to distract us from living the life God has called us to
live. But by God’s grace we will overcome. Psalm 12:1 and 2Timothy 3:12  
 
God has given you His grace to live a godly life in this present world. Titus 2:11-12  
As new creatures in Christ we don’t carry on with our lives as we used to.
There is a change that comes from our spirit man. As the Holy Spirit
does his work in our lives, we live as God expects us to. Ephesians 4:22-24
