Commitments bring Consequences

Good Morning Church Family,

Nothing shapes your life more than the commitments you choose to make. Your commitments can develop you or they can destroy you, but either way, they will define you. Tell me what you are committed to, and I can tell you where you’ll be at the end of your life. We become whatever we are committed to.

It is at this point of commitment that many of us miss God’s purpose for our lives. Some will be afraid to commit to anything and so they will just drift through the years. Others will make half-hearted commitments to competing values, and so they will face frustration and mediocrity over the years to come. Others will make a full commitment to worldly goals, such as becoming wealthy (rich) or famous (powerful), and end up disappointed and bitter.

Every choice you make has eternal consequences, so you had better choose wisely. Peter warns, “Since everything around us is going to melt away, what holy, godly lives you should be living!” 2 Peter 3:11 (NLT)

Spiritual growth is not automatic. It takes an intentional commitment. You must want to grow, decide to grow, make an effort to grow, and persist in growing. Discipleship—the process of becoming like Christ—begins with a commitment to follow Jesus no matter where he leads. Imagine what your life will be like at the end of your life, if you make a full and complete commitment to him now.

Because He Lives, “Acts 20:24”
