Light shines on the godly, and joy on those whose hearts are right. May all who are godly rejoice in the Lord and praise his holy name!” Psalms 97:11-12 NLT
Godly! A word that does not describe most of us. To be godly is to be devout or pious; to act like God! I'm not really fond of the word "pious" because it can give the idea of hypocritical conduct that is meant to appear godly. Many today attend church or associate themselves with "Christian" or the "I believe in God" mentality. However, there are few devout disciples of Jesus Christ! The godly are the ones who live their lives to honor God in all their dealings. Theirs is a faith beyond association, it is dedication! The godly aspire to represent the One they call Master! The eyes of the Lord are all over the earth, looking to find those whose hearts are after Him! “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him..." 2 Chronicles 16:9a NLT Listen to these verses: “Help, O Lord, for the godly are fast disappearing! The faithful have vanished from the earth!” Psalms 12:1 NLT “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say?” Luke 6:46 NLT “Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:6 NLT Are you godly?
