Now listen, Why do you say, “Today, at the latest, tomorrow, we’re off to such and such a city for the year. We are going to start a business and make a lot of money.” You are not even sure what will happen tomorrow. What is your chance? You are just a mist that appears for a short time and then vanishes – James 4:13-15.
What is ungodliness
Ungodliness is defined as living one’s daily life with little or no consideration of God or of God’s will or of God’s reputation or of one’s dependence on God.
How ungodly are you?
Train yourself for godliness – I Timothy 4:7.
Whether we eat or drink, or whatever we do, we should do all to the glory of God – I Corinthians 10:31.
Whatever we do, we should work well, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that we will receive from God the inheritance as our reward. We are serving the Lord Christ – 1 Colossians 3:23-24.
According to the book Respectable sins, by Jerry Bridges, Ungodliness is the spawn of the other sins.
I am less likely to have a crummy attitude, complain or become irritated, if I do, everything that I do, for God’s glory. I admit that there are times, that other than my life in church and my quiet time, I forget to think about God so much in between.
Our primary goal should be pleasing God in everything that we do.
And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God – Titus 2:12.
- Pray over each of our time that our thoughts, words, and actions will be appealing to God.
- Do all for the glory of God by desiring that all our activities of all our days should honor God before other people.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly – Romans 5:6.
This should be our motivation to leave our ungodly lives – that Jesus died on the cross because of our sins.
Please help me pray that God give me godly wisdom and discernment in everything that I do and not do. So that everything will be pleasing and glorifying to Him.
