Godliness is a God-centered life. It grows, not through the pursuit of a process, but through the presence of a person. Jesus Christ is the mystery of godliness (1 Timothy ). His presence in your life is your hope of becoming the person God calls you to be.

    Note carefully, however, that Paul encourages his readers to know that there is great gain in godliness when it is combined with content­ment in the basic necessities of life (1 Tim. , 8). Our God is a God “who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment” (1 Tim. ). This book is extremely salty so after reading it, you will be thirsting for godliness. He has great arguments and refutes many objections from ungodly men. It goes extremely deep talking about the right kind of fear we should have for God and how we should do so and why/5(16).

      Among his writings are All Things for Good (originally published as A Divine Cordial), The Ten Commandments, and more. This edition of Watsons The Great Gain of Godliness is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and illustrations of Watson and other famous Puritan : Charles River Editors.   ""The Great Gain of Godliness"" is Watson's exposition of Mal. In it he aims ""to encourage solid piety and confute the atheists of the world, who imagine there is no gain in godliness."" This book has all the hallmarks of Thomas Watson's other writings: a combination of rich spirituality, nourishing doctrine, and sane practical wisdom Pages:
