Friday: The Result of Devotion
PRAY: Ask God to speak to you from His Word.
READ: Acts 2:47b
And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
UNDERSTAND: get a deeper understanding of the key words
Begin by underlining nouns with a single line, double underline verbs, and circle descriptive words.
Make a list of the keys words/phrases and think about what they mean.
Snapshot: In this passage, Luke gives us insight into how the church grows. The church does not grow because we are doing such a good job. The church grows because God is adding people to His kingdom. Sure He will use us to reach others. But we cannot fall into the trap of thinking that it all depends on us and our efforts. Salvation is from God alone. God brings the growth. We need only to be obedient to what God has called us to do. God will take care of the rest.
APPLY: What is this passage calling me to do?
How is our obedience linked to God’s work of bringing people to Himself?
In what ways can you be more devoted?
PRAY: Ask God to help you become more devoted to Him.
