What is Commitment?

Psalm 37:1-11
People talk about commitment all the time. What is commitment? Sometimes we see commitment only as it applies to certain jobs, our career, or our individual goals. This is all true, but commitment is not just one area of our lives. Commitment is a part of our character—what we are, who we are and to whom we belong. Let’s discover more about commitment today.
 Commitment begins in God vv. 1-4. I know all kinds of people call for our commitment. It may be the t-ball coach, the teacher, the supervisor of even our mates. Real commitment begins and ends in our relationship with Christ. Look at these verses with me. Don’t fret about others. Trust in the Lord. Delight yourselves in the Lord. The emphasis is upon our relationship with the Lord. Too often Christians have tried to be committed to a task or a change in their lives without the relationship with Christ. No wonder we fail.
Commitment is doing the will of God vv. 5-6. Understand something important here. Commitment in every part of our lives depends upon doing the will of God. God wants to be first and central to us. When this is true we are promised God’s blessings (read vv. 4-5). The reason so many Christians are not experiencing the joy and strength of the Lord is because we are not committed in our hearts to the Lord. Look at the promises of vv. 4-5.
Commitment is a healthier way of life vv. 7-11. When we are committed to the Lord look at the instructions we are able to follow. Don’t stress and fret. We don’t have to compete. We look at others who are successful and seem to get along so well. When we are committed to the Lord, they and their successes don’t matter so much because we are in the Lord. I want to call you to be committed to Jesus Christ, committed to the church and the Revival. We all need to be committed to our Lord, our families and to whatever Christ has given us to do. We cannot be really committed to any of these until first we are committed to Christ. Call out to Christ, confess and repent of our sins, ask him to be our Savior.

Psalm 37:1-11
Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong;
2 for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
3 Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret--it leads only to evil.
9 For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.
10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.
11 But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace.
                                                                                                                                   NIV
Are you more committed to yourself than to Christ?
Why do we expect God to bless and reward us when he knows our commitment to him?
We are the only one who can change our commitment to Christ.

Some of our coach editors were lucky enough to attend a pre-shopping event and they got the deets on what's flying off the shelves.

<p>If there's common ground between the two that won't lead to gut-twisting anxiety or tears and disappointment, it's probably this coach Chocolate Truffle Ring ($23).</p>

<p>There's a sailor stripe shirt and then there's a shirt that actually looks like a sailor might have worn it - especially if that sailor's name was coach outlet.</p>

<p>Sharing the thirty-six-piece chocolate set will seem like an act of kindness (and it totally is!), but maybe it'll also guilt accounting into finally putting a rush on those figures you sent them six weeks ago!</p>

<p>Each bag contains two ounces of beans and is packaged smartly with a message of affection on the front.</p>

<p>It'll help smooth and hydrate patchy elbows and coach outlet and restore moisture to hands and feet.

<p>Recently while giving these talks, it occurred to me that some of the points I'm making are actually pretty relevant to just general life,</p>

<p> so I thought I'd share a few of them here. </p>

<p>Despite the ensuing interval, </p>

<p>only a third of the companies that used fitflops in the facility have offered to compensate the survivors and the families of the deceased.</p>

<p>Fitflop Offer is valid through tonight 02/09/2014!</p>
