Piety has fallen on hard times.

Some associate it with its evil twin, pietism, and reject piety based on the incorrect assumption that the two are one and the same. Pietism is inwardly focused, obsessed with carefully following spiritual to-do lists and rules. Piety, rather, fights against that inward focus, turning our attention out toward God and His promises and toward our neighbor in love and care. Piety is simply the cultivation of godly habits—habits that befit the household of God, the family of our heavenly Father.

In Thank, Praise, Serve, and Obey: Recover the Joys of Piety, Martin Luther’s small catechism and the Book of Concord serve as our trusty roadmaps as we explore how to properly hear in the Scriptures our heavenly Father summoning us to the joy and freedom of living and growing as His beloved children through Jesus Christ.

What a DELIGHTFUL encouragement to Piety (not Pietism)

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 Yes, I am saved by grace. I don't have to earn my way into God's favor – Christ's Righteousness is the garment that covers me in ways that the skin given to Adam and Eve never could. Pastor Weedon's book reminded me about how joyful it can be to live within that holiness. He encourages me to practice (continually) the "habits" that make sanctification a part of our daily lives. You know, those "little" things that make up piety. Faithfully listening to the Word of God, with more than just our eardrums… Making both ancient and impromptu prayers are part of our whole day… Regularly cherishing The Lord's Supper… Confession and Absolution… Joyful and Sacrificial Giving… Telling the wonderful things God has done and continues to do in our lives… Looking with delight for ways to serve our neighbor and God… Even remembering death and judgment can strengthen our sanctification. We have the privilege and high calling to live a life of piety. We get to rejoice in the Lord and share this delight with those around us. We have a life moving forward under God's Direction and Presence. This is so OPPOSITE of life of Pietism – that inward -looking, "my holiness is better than your holiness" that gives Christianity a bad name. This book has discussion questions that make it useful for personal or group study. I think that I will be using it regularly as more of an encouragement.
