The Godly Man’s Picture – Thomas Watson

A taste as I open this book, The Godly Man’s Picture by Thomas Watson, he captures me with his brief note, 

“To the Reader”

…Oh, that all into whose hands this book shall providentially come, may be so enamoured with piety as to embrace it heartily.  So sublime is godliness that it cannot be delineated in its perfect radiance and lustre, though an angel should take the pencil.  Godliness is our wisdom…

“… Godliness puts a man in heaven before his time.  Christian, aspire after piety; it is a lawful ambition.” 

And who can forget Paul’s words concerning godliness throughout 1 Timothy…

But godliness with contentment is great gain,  1 Timothy 6:6

But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.  1 Timothy 6:11

looking forward to this read…
