Services of Devotion, A Must for Christians
(Passage: James 4)
The early believers deviated from serving God with true devotion, and God’s miracle stopped happening in their midst also. Apostle James explained the main cause of God’s retrogressive miracles that existed among the brethren. James stated,
“Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures” (James 4:1-3).
God’s Miracles Accompany True Devotion
A devotion service means so much to God; Christians should give the best of it to him. Any Christian who expects to witness the power of God in his or her life must keep a consistent relationship with God. A Christian cannot demonstrate the works of the flesh and expect God’s miracles to happen in his or her life.
Some activities that are categorized as the works of the flesh that inhibit true devotion are listed in Galatians 5:19. All the activities listed (and the related ones) only satisfy the cravings of the flesh. Believers must shun ungodly behaviors and allow the Holy Spirit to rule them to adequately fit God’s plan and enjoy his benefits. The scripture emphasized that God requires his worshipers to worship him in Spirit and in truth.
God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24 NIV).
Many rewards await the believers that prioritize serving God with faithfulness. Jehovah will reward them with some imperishable crowns in his kingdom.
