The Pursuit of Godliness

The Bible has a lot to say about godliness. Not only does God want you to be godly, but He wants you to raise godly children (Malachi 2:15). We are commanded to pray for our political leaders so that we can be free to live in all godliness (1 Tim 2:1-2). Godliness pleases God (1 Tim 2:2-3). We must train ourselves to be godly (1 Tim 4:7). We must pursue godliness (1 Tim 6:11). We are instructed to live in a godly way in this present age (Titus 2:12). We are commanded to be people of godliness (2 Peter 3:11). Clearly godliness is essential for Christians. So what is godliness and how do we cultivate it in our lives?
