4:7 Resources

Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness. (1 Timothy 4:7)

Godliness does not happen by accident. Left to our own inclinations, we are more prone to wander toward irreverent, silly myths than towards the truth. Thankfully, God has not left us to accidents or to our own inclinations: he chooses to bless our efforts towards godliness. In 1 Timothy 4:7, The word “train” is the English translation of the Greek word gymnazo, from which we derive words like “gymnasium” and “gymnastics.” It brings to mind an athlete who has stripped himself of any hindrance or weight so that he might train with the utmost intensity.
