Jesus and the Coronavirus (Day 16)

Learn Devotion

The book of Acts provides a stunning narrative insight into the activities of the primitive church. As you read it, you can witness the story of the Gospel message travelling from ‘Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
One of the foundational passages on how the church conducted itself is the one you have just read. Over the next few days, we will study the application of this in detail.
Today’s focus is on the idea of ‘devotion’. It’s an old-fashioned word, but one that is important for us to get our head around. Devotion means a ‘love, loyalty, or enthusiasm for a person or activity.’ The early disciples demonstrated all of this for Jesus. They were 100% all in. The depth of their devotion determined their discipline in lifestyle. They filled their lives with the things that would bear spiritual fruit and, as a result, they had an enormous impact on the world.
What you are devoted to will determine the fruit that you produce. What are you devoted to today? 

Look back over your last 7 days. Consider how you spent your time. Consider what you spent your money on. Consider what you spent time thinking about. What do you think you are devoted to?
Our challenge is to shift our devotion to Jesus. Come up with one practical way to help you to do that over the next 7 days.
