This week as we prepare for the New Year, we asked ourselves this question, are we willing to be devoted? In Acts 2:42, we read that the first 3,120 believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. This was not just a momentary piece of their lives, but it is how they lived because they were a changed people. People who were willing to be different so that God could have His way and be glorified. People who were committed to Christ and committed to each other. Devotion is what you never stop doing. It is a constant call. Once it begins, it must continue. Jesus was devoted to the will of the Father and devoted to those who were placed with Him. Mary was devoted to the Word of the Lord. We read in Luke 2 that she pondered and treasured in her heart all that was said and had taken place and despite her lack of understanding, she trusted God and was committed to His will. I pray that as we go into this New Year, that we would become a people who are willing to be devoted, that we would desire to see numbers added to the church daily and be willing to be changed.
