When we think of the word commitment, we often think about how it applies to our personal relationship with our spouse. But Commitment comes in many forms, and the Bible talks in depth about these forms. There is not only commitment to spouse, but there is commitment to God, to our spiritual path and leading to a good life.
What is the biblical meaning of commitment?
Answer: Commitment is obedience, trusting, and a slave, serving and surrendering actions to the person you are committed to. For example, when you commit to Jesus you are saying that you will obey, trust, be a slave of and surrender to Jesus.
In reference to Psalms 37: 3-5 there are some Benefits to being Committed to God.
- God will make your burdens lighter
- God will make your walk righter
- God will make your life brighter
So as we make this commitment to God, also know there is danger in turning back once you have made the commitment.
Be blessed to all readers of my blog is my prayer for this week.
