…and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.2 Peter 1:6-7
A Godly Life
With knowledge comes self-control. With self-control comes patient endurance. Patient endurance produces godliness. Godliness is the end goal for the Christian and it is a process that never ends. This is all part of the sanctification process. As the Christian studies the Word and gains knowledge he or she will also show self-control in the way they live. Then, with that self-control comes patience. They will show patience because they have self control, and all of that will lead to godly living!
Spend some time today in the Word, gaining knowledge and understanding so that you can live a more godly life.
A Prayer to Remember
Give me a hunger for your Word. May I long to spend time everyday learning how to live a godly life. Amen.
