From the Pastor...

"I am afraid that...your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ."  2 Corinthians 11:3

1. What True Devotion To God Is Not.

Devotion does not consist of reading the Bible, nor praying, nor attending meetings. These may or may not be specific instances of devotion, but are not to be regarded as devotion itself.
Devotion does not consist of individual acts or exercises of any kind. These may indeed be devotional acts, that is "acts of devotion," but let it be remembered that no acts or exercises in themselves constitute devotion.

2. What True Devotion To God Is.

Devotion is that state of heart in which everything - our whole life, being and possessions - are a continual offering to God, that is they are continually devoted to God. True devotion must be the supreme devotion of the will, extending out to all we have and are - to all times, places, employments, thought and feelings.

- Charles G. Finney
