“Godliness is a real thing…It is not a fantasy but a fact. Godliness is not the feverish conceit of a sick brain; a Christian is no enthusiast…Godliness has truth for its foundation…If God is true, then godliness is true.” (Chapter 2, p.12)
There is a balance to strike between godly fervor and self-control. Others should be able to sense our love for the Lord – our godliness; it should be palpable. The danger though is in being swept away by our emotions and feelings into a disorderly demeanor or behavior.
So, then, be godly; let others sense it in your demeanor, actions, and words, but remain firm and self-disciplined with God’s word (not the temporary circumstance of your emotions and feelings) as your only firm foundation.
