DAILY DEVO...Taking God seriously.

It is estimated that there are over a half a billion practicing Christians in the world. Half a billion? But yet, it all started with just a small group of disciples. Twelve men who were sold out for the love of Christ. The things of God were not a part time hobby or a convenience to the early believers, it was their highest priority...

'The believers met in the Temple every day...' (Acts 2:46)

Every day?

They took church seriously! It is difficult for Pastors to "pack a pew" on a selected Sunday nowadays, so how crazy would it be if your Pastor asked you to come to church EVERY day?

I don't know about you, but my life gets busy, and I have hobbies and sometimes I even get weary. These and more are the reasons some of us give but are we that much busier than the original twelve?

Probably not. They had far less convenience than we do but yet somehow they found themselves in the Temple daily.

Lord, give us a hunger like that for You! We may not be able to go to God's House daily, but at the very least, we can daily go to His Throne!

Examine your faithfulness to God and His house today. We may not be the first 12, but we are just as needed in the Kingdom. May we make our relationship with Christ top priority!
