Great relationships require us to be devoted to one another. When we are devoted, we are willing to put the other person first. When we are devoted, we are willing to serve and help them. When we are devoted, we put aside what we want and commit ourselves to loving them. In our relationship with God, He wants us to be devoted to Him and turn away from godless living and sinful pleasures. He wants us to put Him first, serve Him and love Him. We need to be sure we are living as He wants us to, devoted to Him, every day.
Titus 2:12 “And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God,” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to desire to be more devoted to You. Help us to turn away from sin and live as You want us to. We know we need to show our devotion to You daily. We need to read Your word and put You first in all things. We need to serve and love You all day long. Help us today to live as You want us to live and show our devotion to You putting You first in all we do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
