[The next few posts come from a tract called Ten Disciplines of a Godly Man.  The question among us shouldn’t be whether we want to be Godly Men, but rather how can we be more Godly as men.]

Sensuality is the biggest obstacle to godliness among Christian men. The fall of King David should not only instruct us but scare the sensuality right out of us! Fill yourself with God’s Word—memorize passages like 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8, Job 31:1, Proverbs 6:27, Ephesians 5:3-7, and 2 Timothy 2:22. Find someone who will help you keep your soul faithful to God.
