How often do we think about the incredible nature of godliness? Sure, we talk a lot about the need to remain faithful or the requirement of a commitment to our principled lifestyle, but how often do we focus on just how wonderful a holy life can be? When we make the decision to live in harmony with God our lives become filled with some delightful rewards. We get to see the world through the eyes of our Creator. We get to experience this realm in a way that leads us to an abundant life. We get to enjoy things like peace, hope, joy and love. In a society that struggles with finding purpose and contentment those who pursue godliness are given a chance to make the most out of our days on this earth.
Centuries ago, one of God’s most notable servants observed, “How blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord. How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, who seek Him with all their heart.” (Psalm 118:1-2). When we dedicate ourselves to God, we get so much more in return. Whether it is how we live or what we receive, we are blessed with something that grants us not only an eternal reward, but a satisfying life in the here and now.
Are we feeling the blessings of godliness? Are we thankful for the physical and spiritual gifts of God? If so, let’s take the opportunity this weekend to praise Him for what He has done by worshipping Him with some like-minded believers.
Think About It!
