The acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness. Titus 1:1
Are the truths we know practical, or theoretical? The phrase “after godliness” means “according to godliness.” It refers to truth that produces, or results in godliness. This is often overlooked. Bible knowledge alone does not equal godliness. It’s easier to listen to truth or talk about it than to apply it. But God intends it to be known, believed and applied. It has transforming power and God intends it to affect every area of our lives. When this happens it produces a life that is godly. —Carl Knott
Master, speak! And make me ready, when Thy voice is truly heard,
With obedience glad and steady, still to follow every word.
—Frances Ridley Havergal
