While I was at camp we were assigned teams. Each team got to design a flag, and prepare a short skit based on the camp's theme, devotion. My team spent a lot of time just brainstorming ideas. What is devotion? What things can we do to show devotion to God?
Our final product went something like this...Each person would represent some sort of issue: peer pressure, hypocriticism, worldly distractions, etc. Then one by one, they would kneel at the cross, as if to say, " I am giving it all to you God." What a beautiful picture of devotion.
This world is so distracting in so many ways. Especially for christians. We try our best (hopfully!) to lead the life God wants us to, but the enemy tries to stumble us in any way he can. Sometimes it may be something we don't want to let go of, and it may be difficult at first. But the bible tells us not to be discouraged, because God will be with you through it all.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
