Today’s devotion is based on Acts 2:42, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
The teaching of the apostles was the delight of the Jerusalem church. It was the one thing they needed. It was their dearest treasure. Therefore, they not only held it in the highest regard, but they also put it into practice. They lived in the joy of the gospel. In their worship, fellowship, witnessing, praying, love, sharing, and offerings, they thanked God for the blessing of his Word.
The Bible continues to be the only source for direction in this life, and hope for eternity the power of the Holy Spirit will be present to lead us into the truth and the joy of the gospel.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, thank you for your Son Jesus, who has brought us into a peaceful relationship with you. Guide and direct me to do your will by your Word and help me be devoted to you. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
