Godliness must be exercised by every child of God

Godliness must be exercised by every child of God

“For bodily exercise profits little but godliness is profitable unto all things, having the promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8.

Our identity is portrayed by exercising who we are and what we are in the lord. Who are you if I may ask? What are you if I may ask? These are serious questions for those who want to face life serious. There is this lie pervading the whole earth now on securing your place in heaven. Many say I will go to heaven as long as I have confessed Christ Jesus as the lord of my life even if am still wallowing in sin. That is a lie from the pit of hell.

You can’t make heaven if you still indulge yourself in sin. The Bible tells us that the soul that sins shall die. Have you seen the clarity of God’s word regarding making heaven? This will tell you that you can’t mock God. “Whatsoever you sow, you will reap it as a harvest according to Galatians 6:7.

So when you sow sin continuously in your life you will die. Why? Because the wages of sin are death the Bible says.

In our above opening scripture it says, “for bodily exercise profits little but godliness is profitable unto all things, having the promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.”1 Timothy 4:8. Bodily exercise profits little although we have to do it as well because it helps our body to maintain its agility and health.

Many are sick because of lack exercising their bodies but now we are focusing on exercising godliness which profits in all things and then he mentions further in the life that we are in now meaning the earthly life. Godliness protects us from the onslaughts of the enemy because he tempts us to destroy us. His mission is to steal kill and destroy but Jesus came to give you life in its abundance but this abundance of life is only attainable if you practice godliness at its highest height till your life smells with the aroma of righteousness.

Someone would ask: is there an aroma of righteousness? Yes, it’s there. Someone who is godly can be sensed by those who walk in the spirit. A spirit filled person can sense the spirit that you are a godly person to be celebrated and imitated.

The second phase of the scripture further says exercising yourself in godliness promises us of the life to come. This is speaking of the life that you will live in glory with the father in heaven.

Therefore, this lie that Godliness doesn’t matter as long as you have accepted Jesus as lord of your life should be removed from of your mind my brother and sister to secure your eternity with your heavenly father.

Prayer of salvation: Lord thank you for your death on the cross of Calvary. Today I accept you as the lord of my life. I am born again today and eternity in you is secured in Jesus name.  Amen!

If you have prayed, we believe you are saved, now find a Bible believing church and grow your faith in Him alone.
