What is commitment?
It means "to give entirely to a specific person, activity, or cause." When you sense a desire to come out of a life of committing sin, you are ready to commit to a life of righteousness. This cannot be accomplished by going to church alone. This cannot be accomplished by reading the Bible or singing in a church choir. All these things are good, but without making a personal, but public commitment to receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, there is no way that you will remain committed.
It's just like getting married. You go through a ceremony of matrimony. Before the preacher and witnesses, you vow to be faithful to the one you love. You make a commitment to love each other no matter what. You are displaying your commitment to that person.
It's the same with becoming committed to Jesus Christ. You are publicly telling the world that you are through with being committed to sin and you are now committed to Jesus as your Lord and Savior to commit sin no more. You are committed to live a righteous life by the power of the Holy Spirit, to obey God and His Word.
This commitment takes the grace of God. In other words, God helps you every day to live a committed life. Through prayer, reading, and obeying the Word of God, you can grow stronger and your commitment to Christ will develop into a lasting relationship with the Lord, with your name written in the Lamb's Book of Life. This is where going to church, singing on the choir, and reading your Bible will be of more value to you because you are now committed to Jesus Christ as a born again child of God.
Let's get committed!
