Series On Devotion

The word “devoted” is a relatively common word in Scripture. Acts 2:42 reveals that the early believers were “devoted” to the apostles' doctrine and to one another.Paul was “devoted” to preaching (Acts 18:5). Paul used the word in urging followers to “devote” themselves to prayer (Colossians 4:2), and to one another (Romans 12:10).  Jesus spoke of the dilemma of being “devoted” 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!
