Question and Answer

The Bible says, “Godliness has value for all things” (1 Tim. 4:8). What is godliness?
Godliness is devotion to the person of God. It is a comprehensive term for the whole of the Christian life. Godliness includes knowledge of God and not merely knowledge about God. Godliness also includes reverence for God and loyalty to God. It is the response of heart in all of life to who God is in His awesome holiness and unspeakable glory.

By Dr. Winfred O. Neely, Professor of Pastoral Studies
