Needed: Godly Commitment
October 8, 2021

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Needed: Godly Commitment”

We live in a world where long-term commitments are no longer wanted or desired. This is true in marriage, work, and even the church. Today we fear commitments and live by the creed, “I want to keep my options open.” In other words, we don’t want to get to the end of the buffet line and find out we have no more room on our plates for the cake and ice cream.

People today just don’t want to make commitments, thus missing out on building a great life for themselves and for their family. When we make a commitment, we’re choosing how we’re going to invest our lives, time, and resources. And when we refuse to make life’s important commitments, we’re missing out on a life that will count for all eternity.

The sad reality is that a lot of those who go to church today won’t be seen in the next two to five years in the church. Some will leave the community, others go to another church, but the majority won’t be found in any church.

One of the main reasons is that they didn’t or wouldn’t fully commit to God. They refuse to burn the ships in the harbor so they can retreat the old land they left behind.

Today’s churches are filled mostly with casual Christians, and while they say they’re following the Lord, they’re doing so in a way that fits their schedule or lifestyle, but not the way prescribed by God.

If we’re ever going to see a spiritual revival, then a commitment needs to be made much like the commitment made by Joshua.

“And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15)
