Pastor’s Corner: Training to be a Godly person

By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp

Family Life Christian Center

In 1 Timothy 4:7 & 8 we read, “Train  yourself to live Godly.  Physical training is of some value, but Godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”

A person simply does not become Godly over night.  It takes time to grow and mature, just like fruit on a tree.  It takes a focused attitude to grow spiritually.  Many people have gym memberships and spend time training with weights, to either loose or gain weight.  But physical training is of no help for spiritual growth.

To mature spiritually, you must daily spend time reading and studying the Bible, it is God’s word.  You must talk with God each day.  It must be a good conversation, not just an ‘I want’ list.  You must spend time in worshiping the Lord.  This gets you closer to Him and into His Presence.

These things will not only help us in this present life, but will also guarantee our home in heaven.  Living in Godliness is not hard to do, but it does take time to correctly learn how.  Train yourself to be a Godly person.  God will take care of you.
