The word â€œdevotedâ€ is a relatively common word in Scripture. Acts 2:42 reveals that the early believers were â€œdevotedâ€ to the apostles' doctrine and to one another.Paul was â€œdevotedâ€ to preaching (Acts 18:5). Paul used the word in urging followers to â€œdevoteâ€ themselves to prayer (Colossians 4:2), and to one another (Romans 12:10).Â Jesus spoke of the dilemma of being â€œdevotedâ€ to two masters (Matthew 6:24) and the impossibility of dividing one's heart. Devotion. The first century believer understood the term and strived to live that term because nothing less could direct one through times of trial and temptation. Our culture understands this term as well, because people will find themselves drawn to something or someone who demands a devotion-like status. In the next four weeks we will be looking at the description of a devoted follower of Christ - what it looks like. Being devoted to Christ has four dimensions we will explore in depth. I'm looking forward to studying with you and being challenged by God's Word!
