Stay Dedicated and Devoted
So, do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them.
Two things can weaken our resolve, our dedication and devotion to God.
- Persecution weakens our resolve, but dedication regenerates our devotion.
- Routine weakens our resolve, but dedication regenerates our devotion.
- to devote wholly and earnestly, as to some person or purpose:
- concentrate on a particular pursuit, occupation, purpose, cause, etc.
The writer is advocating for prison ministry. (Hebrews 13:3)
Something to Do
Stay dedicated, so I will be strong during times of persecution and routine.
