ORANGE TIP: Commitment

ORANGE TIP: Commitment

I had the pleasure and honour of seeing two of my friends get married on the weekend. It was beautiful to see them make a commitment to each other for the rest of their lives. And not just to each other, but to God.

But what is commitment? How often do we say something like ‘yeah I’ll do it’ or ‘I’ll be there’ and have absolutely no intention of actually following through with it?

The Cambridge Dictionary defines commitment as: a promise or firm decision to do something.
Hmm, that doesn’t sound like we are committing to anything when we SAY we’ll do something but then IGNORE it.

How committed are you to God? Do you say things like, ‘I’ll read my Bible more’, or ‘I’ll pray more’, or ‘I’ll go to church/watch online church more’?

We are not perfect people and we will always fall short. I encourage you to commit one thing to God this week. What will your one thing be?
