Reflections on Devotion to God

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
Matthew 6:24

When we think of God’s delight in us and His love to us, is it not shameful that we should have been so seldom engaged in devotion toward Him. ~ Charles Spurgeon

The things that God is most concerned about are our coldness of heart towards Himself and our proud, unbroken natures. Christian service of itself can, and so often does, leave our self-centered nature untouched. ~ Roy Hession

Morning devotion anchors the soul, so that it will not very readily drift far away from God during the day. ~ Charles Spurgeon

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul . . .
Acts 2: 42 ff.
