Six Great Bible Verses on Godliness

Everyone makes a personal judgment as to whether or not he or she is godly. That judgment may be based on a definition like one of the following:

  • “God-like beauty and intelligence more than the average individual” (Urban Dictionary).

However acceptable these definitions may seem, Bible guidelines offer more specific detail concerning a godly lifestyle.

Here are six great Bible verses by which those who profess godliness can measure themselves. There are others, for sure, but these provide a comprehensive guide, covering all aspects of daily living beginning with the thoughts. They will help guide the focus of the godly person, and can be very effective if stored in the mind.


Thoughts and Attitudes

(1) Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Ephesians 4: 23

It is common knowledge that our thoughts determine who we are and what we do. Most Bible students are familiar with the verse (Philippians 4: 8) which tells us what to think about: things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, and commendable. But what is a person to do when a thought of a different quality enters the mind?

The verse in Ephesians stresses renewal. Not merely brushing aside the ungodly thought, but replacing it with a godly thought, and that involves the work of the Spirit. Thoughts and attitudes do not change from ungodly to godly until we make it a habit to have the Spirit filter them.

Speech

(2) Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. Ephesians 5: 4

What does a godly person talk and not talk about? This verse is an excellent reference to keep in mind. It does not forbid all story-telling, talking and joking —only those that are offensive to the standards of godliness, inciting or promoting immorality and disgusting in similar ways.

The verse furthers tells us what to talk about—thankfulness. That takes care of negativity like complaints, criticism, and humiliation. In essence, it prompts us to speak positively about ourselves and others; and it is not unusual for the godly person to include reasons for gratitude to God in a friendly conversation.


Appearance

(3) Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. 1 Peter 3: 3, 4

Primarily addressed to women, this verse tells us not to evaluate our worth by what we wear—a principle which is appropriate for both genders. It does not encourage us to neglect our appearance. It stresses that beauty is not put on, but put forth from the inside; that to God, the author of godliness, the beauty of our inner spirit is more important than our outward appearance. There is another verse in 1 Timothy 2: 9, 10 which advises that our clothes should be modest, decent and appropriate – the influence of our inner beauty.


Conduct

(4) But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Ephesians 5: 3 (New International Version)

This verse calls for integrity in all family, social and business relationships. Just a hint of ungodliness in the conduct of godly people attracts the judgment of those who know the standards of godliness—and understandably so, because it is not becoming. It is expected that the fruit of the Spirit— “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” (Galatians 5: 22, 23) will be demonstrated in the conduct of the godly person.

Source

Media Choices

(5) Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. 2 Timothy 2: 22a

In the Bible commentary, the following are listed as by-products of lust: covetousness, incest, homosexuality, vulgarity, profanity, and lewdness—the desire to excite sexual desires in an offensive way. These ungodly acts are not limited to the youth; in fact, some young people become discouraged watching adults lose in their struggle against these vices. The advice is to run from them. Would that include refusing to watch them on television, visiting them on websites, feeding them into the mind through books and song lyrics? The verse tells us what to run from as well as what to run after. Godly people will look for media sites and products promoting godly living.

Relationships

(6) Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 2 Timothy 2: 22b

It is difficult for godly people to enjoy the company of people who show disregard for godliness. That said, it does not encourage rejection of the ungodly; but time spent with people whose company the godly does not enjoy would be limited. Advice from various sources encourages us to keep company with the people whose virtues we would like to emulate.

Pure hearts attract pure hearts. The godly person in pursuit of wholesome relationships will find him or herself drawn to other people who lead godly lives.

Good evening msdora.

Inspiring. Much helpful checklist verses to maintain requirement. Godliness isn't optional, rather standard. Paul wrote toTimothy, 1. 6:6 "Godliness with contentment is great gain." Once we've have been received into the family of God, as the children of YHWH , we have made choice to be doers of the Word, to maintain the life of righteousness , (Rom.1:17)

Voting up and useful.

Hi MsDora,

That's a helpful list of verses and applications. I wonder if we think we are godly if we really are. It's kind of like admitting we're humble. When we say we are humble we're proud of the fact that we are and thereby lose our humility. Just a thought.

Thank you once again, Ms. Dora, for inspiring a Godly life. I particularly like your choice of less well-known verses. As I see it, living a Godly life is just the first step on the religious journey. If we keep the commandments and live a Godly life using the verses you recommend here, we are pointed in the right direction. Going further, we can follow the narrow, upward path of the beatitudes. We can love our neighbors and enemies as ourselves. And we can perfect ourselves, becoming perfect as God in heaven is perfect, and casting out fear forever. Then, indeed, all the gifts of God are given to each and every one.

Wow, these verses really hit home with me! I often get so tied up in the busy-ness of work, living and paying bills, sometimes to the point of letting my guard down and letting my sinful nature get the best of me. As Christians we have to be in the Bible regularly, I don't always have time to read, but I have to do a lot of driving for my work, and I've found that listening to my MP3 Bible definitely helps me to think and reflect on the Lord's word throughout the day!

Hi MsDora! Beautiful versus for living. They are so true.

I remember when I volunteered at a Christian school for some time. The director was a very wealthy person who didn't always put her focus and priorities where they should be. One day she was chastising a student in front of others for wearing a skirt that she felt was too short. It was knee length. But other students were wearing shorter skirts. I felt she was inappropriately calling out that student.

This woman wore a lot of flashy jewelry. Layers of necklaces, bracelets, diamonds, gold, etc. She rarely helped the poor, but looked to gain followers of the rich.

I politely told her about 1 Peter 3: 3, 4. She had never heard of the verse!

Great Hub!

MsDora 3 years ago from The Caribbean Author

Jackie, thank you for your commenting and sharing. It is true thoughts surprise us; but after they come, it is our choice to give them a home or to push them away. Your song should not be one that allows you to ignore the bad thought. Recognize it, rebuke it and replace it. If the song replaces (not ignores) the bad thought, then you have done well.

Beautiful collection of great teachings indeed.

The matter is of the heart (motive, thoughts, mind etc.), for from it springs issues of life. What defiles a man is what comes from within his heart not what comes from outside, says our King Jesus.

Indeed once the mind is renewed, what comes after that is the fruit of a new mind, every other listed areas such as speech, conduct etc. will align to a new mind because a mind driven by God's Spirit is the leader of our bodies and our life indeed!

Wonderful share MsDora!
