In writing to Timothy, Paul taught that we are to train or discipline ourselves to be godly. Discipline toward holiness begins with God’s word and leads us in correcting, molding, and training our moral character. Along the way, perseverance must be exercised in the disciplined practice of holiness for our life. Because of the Bible’s instruction for personal discipline, we are to be in pursuit of holiness.
