EXERCISING YOURSELF TOWARDS GODLINESS!
But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness (1 Timothy 4:7).
As Christians, we are expected to grow in every aspect especially in our spiritual lives. In the opening text, Apostle Paul admonished Timothy his beloved son in the Lord to reject profane and old wives’ fables, and constantly exercise himself towards godliness. The word, “godliness” is referred to as God’s divine kind of life or the excellent life of God. Christianity is a supernatural life full of God’s power and authority. Every Christian is hereby admonished to always exercise himself towards godliness which is the divine and excellent life of God.
When you exercise yourself towards godliness, you receive the anointing to live the supernatural life of God. A Christian is expected to pray, constantly study and meditate upon God’s Word. The more you constantly pray by studying and meditating upon God’s Word, the more you are exercising yourself towards godliness. Praying, studying and meditating upon God’s Word is victorious Christian living unto godliness. Godliness is the essence of divine nature of God in the life of a Christian.
God has called you as a Christian to be victorious and more than a conqueror. But you need to build yourself up by exercising yourself towards godliness in Christ Jesus. That is why the Bible says in 2 Timothy 2:15, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” You are expected to diligently exercise and build yourself towards godliness. The goal of every Christian is have the nature of God through excellent and divine life in Jesus Christ.
Daily Tip: Exercising and building yourself towards godliness is a must for every Christian who wants to experience growth in the Lord. Shalom!
