When you are devoted to someone, you attempt to do all you can to please this person. For example, you use every effort to spend time with that special fellow or gal.
This is how your relationship with God ought to be. First, you should do all you can to please Him. As the Bible says, “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). Even when you sit down at the table to eat your bacon and eggs and drink your coffee, you think about pleasing God.
Second, if you are devoted to God, you will also spend time alone with Him each day. You will listen to what God has to say to you. You do this by reading the Bible. When you read the Bible, God speaks to you from the pages of this great book. You will also talk with God. This is prayer. We call spending time with God each day in Bible reading and prayer our daily devotions. Whether or not you have daily devotions may be an indicator of the depth of your devotion to God.
Are you devoted to God? How do you respond to these questions? Do you attempt to please God in all you do? Do you spend time alone with God each day?
