Thought of the Day !!

All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord's Supper), and to prayer.
                                                             Acts 2:42 (NLT)

These members who made up the beginnings of the Church were devoted people. Devotion means to have a profound dedication for something.  It means making sacrifices or giving up things for whatever you're devoted to.  For instance, I was devoted to band for a few years in Jr. High and High School.  I gave up much of my time and social life for practice and performances.  A man and a woman who are devoted to each other and marry give up their single life and much of what goes with it because they see that what they're gaining is much better.  A person who is devoted to losing weight will give up certain foods that they love to achieve their goal.  

God wants us to become devoted to Him.  What are you willing to sacrifice, or give up, to become a devoted believer?

In the love of Christ,
