THINGS THAT PERTAIN TO GODLINESS
2 Peter 1 vs
3.■ “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:”~《KJV》
Godliness is the force or ability of God infused in you to act like God in your personality, character, and attitude. It is what makes one show reverence to God. It is walking in the fear of the Lord. To be godly is to live reverently, loyally, and obediently toward God. Simply, godliness is acting “God-likenesses”. Apostle Peter in our opening text reveals that the power of Christ HAS GIVEN US (not will give us) everything necessary for godliness. This implies true Christians do not lack the resources or ability to become and live godly life; because he already has every spiritual resource to manifest, sustain, and perfect godly living.
In other words, you don’t have to live as if God hasn’t given you what it takes to live a godly life. So it isn’t right to pray that God should make you a godly person; rather pray for God to empower you to manifest the “godliness-content” resident in your recreated human spirit. Someone may ask “then why don’t we see many living godly lifestyle? Note that “having a thing is not the same as using the thing.” Having it means possession; manifesting it will take an effort on your side to come to the knowledge of what you have and embrace by faith to live accordingly.
To live a godly life will not come natural to you even though you have it; it will require gracious persistence, diligence and effort to CONTINUE to walk in the KNOWLEDGE OF HIM (2 Peter 1:3). This will enable you to stand for godliness in your deeds, words and thoughts. And as you yield yourself to His power you will be strengthened for godliness. Cherished one, no one can blame God for any ungodly lifestyle, because He has given us everything necessary for godliness. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
I thank my heavenly Father for given me everything that pertains to life and godliness. I am awaken to my full identity and responsibility in Christ. I am empowered by His divine power to live and manifest godliness despite challenges. For I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Hallelujah!_
