Godliness Pays

April 21, 2017

 

 

 

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

Godliness is profitable. It pays off! There is profit in serving God and conforming to His will.

In our society today, much emphasis is placed on physical fitness, but spiritual health is even more important. Our physical health is susceptible to disease and injury, but faith can sustain us through any tragedy. 

Notice the words in the verse above: “For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things...' In other words, bodily or physical exercise holds some gain or some value but it is little when compared to godliness (spiritual exercise). Godliness or spiritual exercise / training is profitable for ALL THINGS! Well, the word of God says it is profitable for all things, that means it is so. Godliness is useful and of value in everything and in every way.

Also notice the next line: ''....having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.” Living for God is not detrimental to a successful life, as some do suppose.

To train ourselves to be godly, we must daily develop our faith muscles through the constant study of God's word, obeying it and acting on our faith when needed. We must develop our faith by using God-given abilities in the service of the church. “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:24-25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Are you feeling left out where you are at the moment? Do you feel marginalized at your work place or your community because you are godly? Take courage! Keep faith! There is something wonderful and good just ahead of you. Take some time to meditate on 1 Timothy 4:8 this week and put your faith to work.

Have a great week and God bless you. Amen.
