What makes someone godly? Scripture tells us that God has given us "everything we need for life and godliness." But what makes a Christian godly? In The Practice of Godliness, Jerry Bridges examines what it means to grow in Christian character and helps us establish the foundation upon which that character is built. Bridges opens our eyes to see how character formation affects the way we relate to God, to ourselves, and to others. In this sequel to his best-selling The Pursuit of Holiness, Bridges explores such topics as: How our devotion to God springs from a balance of fear, love, and desire; Practical guidelines for training ourselves to be godly; How we can deepen our devotion to God; How we can take on God's character by seeking the Holy Spirit's action in developing his fruit in our lives. In order to live godly lives, we need an inward foundation of God-centeredness. This book will help you establish that foundation and then build an outward structure of Godlikeness. - Back cover.
