Acts 2:42-3:11 Devoted

The fledgling church famously devoted themselves to the Apostles's teachings, to the fellowship, the breaking of bread and to prayer, as they celebrated many wonders and attesting signs performed by the apostles. One of those wonders is specified with the healing of the man born lame who rises to leap like a deer in praise of Jesus the Messiah. This devotion that undergirds all these events is no fuzzy sentiment. Devotion is discipline fueled by gratitude, diligence ignited by wonder, and duty bursting forth into significance.
