Training for Godliness.

Series: Atomic Habits | Week 2: The Thing That Affects Every Other Thing

Read 1 Timothy 4:7-8

“Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly. Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.”

1. What is good and what is better according to this verse?
2. How does someone become godly?
3. What does godliness promise?

To become godly means simply to be formed into the image of God. But, as these verses point out, godliness requires training! If the number one tool for becoming more like God is Bible engagement, spend some time evaluating this spiritual discipline in your own life. Ask God now to help you approach His Word as a place to meet Him, not as a way to check a box. Pray that God would make it a place for transformation and ask for the Holy Spirit to empower your time.
