Today’s devotional is teaching us about the business of the church, and who is to spread the gospel. They got together all the followers of Christ and chose among them who is most filled with the Holy Spirit, those are the ones who were anointed to go out and preach the gospel to the masses. These men suffered greatly for this choice and for them to continue they would have to be filled with the Holy spirit or they could not have withstood all the hatred against them. Then they chose men who were full of the Holy spirit to manage the business of the church. They did not go out looking for people who had managed business for years and experience under their belt, but Holy men filled with the spirit. Willing to take extra measures to ensure the church was taken care of. These men had to have a strong connection to God more than money so that Godly things came first, not run the church in order to draw more people in and pay tithes to the church. I personally feel this is done so often now. You don’t see preachers telling their flock that you must be moral  and Godly in your actions or you will have an eternity in hell for your future. It seems that churches today only want to talk about how much God loves you to draw in crowds and make services like a big production. People don’t want to hear they are going to go to hell, if they don’t repent of their sins. Many even if they regularly go to church. Attending church is not going to save you, it’s your relationship with God that will save you because of the sacrifice that Christ made for us. I fear the young people of today are not hearing those sermons that warn you about getting in situations where they can be tempted by sin. When is the last time you heard a preacher say if you look at another with lust in your heart, you committed adultery? Or talk about fornication to the youth so they understand why it is God’s command to wait till we are married? Yet I will say that it most likely hasn’t been long since you heard a message about how important it is to tithe. The word of God is what the church should be about, not concern over offending the highest tithers from a church. We have to give it all back to God again, and follow his commands utmost, then He will provide the funds for His house. Amen…
