What is your response to Jesus? Is it devotion defined in this way? Ray Ortlund reflects on this passage ::
When the early believers converted to Christ, it never occurred to them to fit him into the margins of their busy lives. They redefined themselves around a new, immovable center. He was not an optional weekend activity, along with the kids’ soccer practices. They put him and his church and his cause first in their hearts, first in their schedules, first in their budgets, first in their reputations, first in their very lives.
They devoted themselves.
Unmistakable evidence that the Holy Spirit was being poured out.
