Devotion, Devotions

DEVOTION, DEVOTIONS di vō’ shən (σεβάσματα). This Gr. word means “an object of religious worship” (Acts 17:23; see 2 Thess 2:4). Devotion appears only five times in the RSV, employed once each by David and Jeremiah and three times by Paul (1 Chron 29:3; Jer 2:2; 1 Cor 7:35; 2 Cor 11:3; Col 2:23). All are trs. from different words. “Devotion” is strictly a Biblical or religious term, with worshipful overtones. It is wishful and willing commitment in acts and attitudes as in prayer and meditation.
