Display Godliness

 

But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness” (1 Timothy 6:11 NKJV). What does it mean to pursue? Paul uses the same word in Philippians 3:14 when He says, “I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (NKJV). It’s not like we have to chase it down in hopes of one day catching righteousness, godliness, etc. We already have these things in us. Now we need to see the fruit of these things working in our lives. We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. We are His godliness displayed to the world. What do they see? It is to set your goal to fulfill your call and purpose. It means not to take your gift of grace lightly but to zealously follow after with intensity and depth to proclaim your allegiance to Jesus through your life. It’s not to neglect such great salvation. It’s to work out your salvation from the inside out. What would Jesus look like today? How is your righteousness to be displayed to a world that is hungry for truth? So follow after these things in your life.
