When weare commited to completing an activity, or comittied to a relationship, we put our complete Heart into the activity and try our best to hold on to it, even to the point till death. The commitment which we have towards God makes a lot of difference in our life. This commitment makes us better people and gives us the strength to hold on to the vision and the Lord and the Holy Spirit. It is the commitment that we have towards the Lord which makes us better people. It is the commitment that we have for the Lord which emables us to carry pur cross and wlk behind Him. It is the commitment towards Him which makes us obey His commandments. It is our commitment to Him which makes us Love others and care for others. If not our commitment we will be no more. There is no price for this comitment, never let it go.
Acts 14:23 Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.
Acts 20:32 Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
2 Corinthians 5:19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
1 Peter 4:19 So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.'
The vice versa is the people's commitment to theflesh.When they are commited to sin, they do all things against the Spirit.(Jude 1:15 to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him. )
Excellent message, thank you for sharing.
Your brother in Christ,
