5 Things the Bible Says About Living a Godly Life

November 5, 2020

Categories: Devotional


When a person accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, they begin the sanctification process of becoming holy, or set apart. This means living a Godly life, which reflects the character of God. Although no one can be perfect like God, the Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts and helps us glorify God in our lives. Billy Graham said, “Make it your goal to become more like Christ by refusing to let sin have its way, and pursuing instead that which is pure and good in the sight of God.”

Read 5 Bible verses about living a Godly life:

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Romans 12:1-2


Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.

2 Timothy 2:15-16


That all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.

John 5:23


As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

1 Peter 1:14-19


Everything that I command you, you shall be careful to do. You shall not add to it or take from it.

Deuteronomy 12:32
