Commitments are beautiful.
They connect man’s value with God’s eternal purposes.
Sometimes people are afraid of commitments because they
overly protect their lives from potential failures and
disappointments. A person who hasn’t accepted any
commitments, besides the ones to himself, lives a very poor
life. All selfishness leads to the worst kind of poverty.
If you are not connected to any other person with anything
that depends on you, you miss a lot in life.
A commitment to a local church is an excellent
opportunity to pursue the call of God for our lives.
The church doesn’t need just helpers, but committed people,
who stick to it.
A church where nobody wants to take any responsibility
is a dying church.
May we have the spirit of Nehemiah, who built the wall of
Jerusalem amid a lot of trials and opposition.
He had heard from God and it caused him to say:
“Should such a man as I flee?” Nehemiah 6:11
