The Answer

 

The answer to godliness
isn’t found

in the world’s
systems and rules

but in the Word
made flesh

believed, received
Holy Spirit proved.

**********

I can live a godly life for You are with me.

**********

“It is quite true that the way to live a godly life is not an easy matter. But the answer lies in Christ, who came to earth as a man, was proved spotless and pure in His Spirit, was served by angels, was preached among the nations, was accepted by men everywhere and was received up again to His glory in heaven.”

1 Timothy 3:14 TLB

The Goal

 

Love
from a pure heart

from a good conscience
from sincere faith

not giving need to
senseless disputes

but to godly edification
and grace.

***********

I can follow good godly instruction for You are with me.

**********

“. . .nor to pay attention to legends (fables, myths), and endless genealogies, which give rise to useless speculation and meaningless arguments rather than advancing God’s program of instruction which is grounded in faith [and requires surrendering the entire self to God in absolute trust and confidence].”

“But the goal of our instruction is love [which springs] from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.”

If what you see
doesn’t measure up

to how things used
to be

stay brave and keep
moving on

into My greater
glory.

**********

You are with me and change what I see.

**********

” ‘Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison with it, is this not in your eyes as nothing?’ “

” ‘Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ says the LORD; ‘and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,’ says the LORD, ‘and work, for I am with you,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

” ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

Think It Over

 

Consider your ways
reflect on your conduct

where your time and
energy’s spent

then listen to Me
for I will be with you

making sure your efforts
are blessed.

**********

You are with me so I desire what You desire.

**********

” ‘Think it over,’ says the Lord of Hosts. ‘Consider how you have acted, and what has happened as a result!’ “

“You hope for much but get so little. And when you bring it home, I blow it away – it doesn’t last at all. Why? Because My temple lies in ruins and you don’t care. Your only concern is your own fine homes.”

“Then Zerubbabel (son of She-alti-el), the governor of Judah, and Joshua (son of Jisedech), the High Priest, and the few people remaining in the land obeyed Haggai’s message from the Lord their God; they began to worship Him in earnest.”

“Then the Lord told them (again sending the message through Haggai, His messenger), ‘I am with you, I will bless you.’ “

“And the Lord gave them a desire to rebuild His Temple . . .”
