Sermon Short - Pastor Bob Lawrenz
Acts 2:46-47 

"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers." - Acts 2:42
The word for “continued steadfast” means to be “continually devoted.” The early church totally and completely devoted and fully immersed themselves to (1) the apostles’ doctrine, (2) fellowship, (3) in the breaking of bread, (4) and in prayers (Acts 2:42).

And why not, they had met the Messiah and had been forgiven all their sins. What had been important to them before Christ— possessions, money, retirement, prestige, entertainment, popularity, land, security, and even family— would seem like nothing to them after knowing Jesus. What can this world offer that compares with Jesus, who is God in the flesh? He is Creator, Redeemer, Savior, and Lord!

As Christians, our devotion should be to Jesus. When you’re devoted to something, it is evident. What is internal becomes external. Our devotion to Jesus should be played out in our lives just like the early church. 
"And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved."  Acts 2:46-47

What are you devoted to?
