Acts2:42 Devoted

Fan or Follower?

So we are working on the study, “Not a Fan” by Kyle Idleman. It’s pretty good stuff. And today’s devotion asks us to define the words Devotion and Admiration. Then it asks the question which do you actually feel towards Jesus.

See we make all kinds of assertions about our love of Jesus but our lives just don’t prove it. To me devotion is personal, focused, and passionate whereas admiration is distant, general, and dispassionate.

How do you see it?

Do Something Friday ( A Day Late)

I’m on the road this weekend so I missed my post yesterday but today’s devotion has a powerful suggestion. Prayer Walking. Walk you neighborhood or another neighborhood and pray over each and every home you pass.

Prayer really is a powerful weapon. If Christians prayed over every home in our city for 40 days would there be a change?

You bet there would be!

God bless and see you Sunday!

Magnifying God

Is it possible for a human being to magnify God? Apparently; so if we are students of scripture, we will remember a passage commonly called “The Magnificat”:

Luke 1:46-49 46 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; 49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.

What a glorious thought but theologically I have issues (Oh do I have issues)- God cannot be made larger can he? Of course not. I as a human cannot add to God’s glory.

But we can call attention to him. We can magnify people’s ability to see and hear God in their lives. By example we can show the love he’s given to us. By example we can praise him. Living changed lives we show symptoms of God at work on earth.

So how will you magnify God today? Mary sang of God’s love for the simple, and poor what will you/I do?
