Commitments

Let’s talk about commitments, commitments to some of the Christian disciplines. My first commitment was to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It took a year and a half before I made another commitment. That commitment was to pray each day. Jesus says that, “men ought to always pray and not faint.”

It took some time, several years but I made a commitment that I was going to be at church for services whenever I was not providentially hindered. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

Eventually I became convicted of the need to spend time reading, studying and memorizing God’s Word which, was another commitment. Jesus tells us in Matthew 4:4, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

It was during a revival service that I became convicted of my need to be a better witness. In Romans 1:16 we are told, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth….”

Commitments by themselves do not a Christian make. But can there really be a Christian without any commitments?
