Continually Devoting

Having been a Christian for basically my entire life the whole "Christian lifestyle" of reading your bible and praying every night can start to become a routine. These past two weeks I've been so busy and my alone time with Jesus has felt more like a routine and something I know I need to do.

Last week I had insomnia and after two hours of tossing and turning I cleaned the kitchen and read a few chapters of Acts. Although I don't remember a lot I love in Acts 2 Luke writes: "they [people who became Christ followers] were continually devoting themselves to the apostles teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." (Acts 2:42)

I was reading a bit of Acts this morning and came across this passage once more. I quickly underlined continually devoting in my bible. I want that to be me. If someone was writing my faith journey I'd want them to pen "Madeline is continually devoting herself to the apostles teaching [New Testament today] and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer."

This week I'm going to make a conscious effort to devout myself more to these things in Acts 2.

I know this will break that small rut of just doing the Christian thing in my busy life.

Hope you are having a good start to your week!
