Dear beloved, from the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised. He is worthy to be praised in our lives because He has done greater things for us. Today we talk about exercising ourselves in the Spirit. Please let us read these verses from the ASV Bible.
“But refuse profane and old wives’ fables. And exercise thyself unto godliness:” – 1 Tim 4:7
“For bodily exercise is profitable for a little; but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life which now is, and of that which is to come.” -1 Tim 4:8
What is godliness? It is the condition of living a godly life and avoiding sin. Yes, godliness is a virtue each Christian possesses, yet we may have to work for it; exercise ourselves unto godliness. Exercising ourselves unto godliness in other sense means to exercise our Spirits. The stronger our Spirits become, the more possible it is for us to live this godly life.
The Bible did not just tell us about exercising unto godliness, but ways and means by which one can live this godly life. Below is a number of them;
– Reading the Word of God.
– Praying to the Lord.
– Fellowship with the saints.
– Preaching the gospel.
– Giving thanks and praises to God.
– Calling upon His name.
– Loving one another.
Please share a word with the world.
