1 Timothy 3:16

King James Version

16 And without controversy 

great is the mystery of godliness: 

God was manifest in the flesh, 

justified in the Spirit, 

seen of angels, 

preached unto the Gentiles, 

believed on in the world, 

received up into glory.

Who better to define "godliness" than Scripture?

Here's were SPIRIT led me:

Deuteronomy 7:9

King James Version

9 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, 

he is God, 

the faithful God, 

which keepeth covenant and mercy 

with them that love him 

and keep his commandments 

to a thousand generations;

Psalm 1:1-3

King James Version

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not 

in the counsel of the ungodly, 

nor standeth in the way of sinners, 

nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 

and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, 

that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; 

his leaf also shall not wither; 

and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Micah 6:8

King James Version

8 He hath shewed thee, 

O man, 

what is good; 

and what doth the Lord require of thee, 

but to do justly, 

and to love mercy, 

and to walk humbly with thy God?

and with all thy mind, 

and with all thy strength: 

this is the first commandment.

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

John 12:26

if any man serve me, 

him will my Father honour.

because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts 

by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.

and gave himself for me.

being in the form of God, 

thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

a good foundation against the time to come, 

that they may lay hold on eternal life.

and to patience godliness;

7 And to godliness brotherly kindness;

and abound, 

they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful 

in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
