(1 Cor. 15:58) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord
Commitment is the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. Itis the willingness to give yourtime and energy to something that you believe in. Reading and studying the Scriptures make us conscious of the many conditional promises made by the Lord to encourage obedience and righteous living. Commitment is an agreement or a pledge to do something. It is a strong believe in a system and staying to achieve its objective. Commitment is an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action. It is dedication to a particular organization, association, group or believe.
Commitment involves thinking carefully about what to do in order to achieve vision, mission and set goals of the church and department you belong. It speaks more about your motive and intentions. Commitment is fired by a burning desire to achieve purpose, the ability to take responsibility, the burden to achieve desired result through personal preparation, prayer and concentration.
Israelite history is filled with examples of covenants, which constitute one of the central themes of the Old Testament—the promises of God. The Lord made a covenant with Noah, and the rainbow became the token of that eternal covenant with all mankind (See Gen. 9:13). The covenant made with Abraham and his seed was sealed by the ceremony of circumcision as a sacrament (See Gen. 17:10–11). Several experiences in the life of Joshua are instructive to us today regarding the importance God places on keeping commitments and on being committed to following the commandments and direction he has given.
Child of God, if you truly want to make heaven, you must be truly committed to God. Failure to do so jeopardizes your soul.
