Misplaced Devotion


“There is a vast difference between devotion to a person and devotion to principles or to a cause. Our Lord never proclaimed a cause— He proclaimed personal devotion to Himself. To be a disciple is to be a devoted bondservant motivated by love for the Lord Jesus.” Oswald Chambers

We are certainly seeing the reality of this today aren’t we? So many Christians jumping on the latest “social cause” bandwagon at the expense of a deep devotion to Jesus. How subtle the enemy is to dupe us into believing that devotion to a cause and devotion to Jesus are one in the same.

I pray that our devotion to the Biblical teachings of Jesus would always take precedence over all else. He tells us what we should be most devoted to…and we must never waiver.
