History tells us of men who almost made it. “If I were to ask you what Charles Pinckney, Horatio Seymour, Alton Parker and James Cox have in common?” Most people would not know who these men were. These men ran for the United States presidency. Obviously these who did not win, but almost won.
History does not reward the man who almost succeeds, only the one who does succeed. Gods Word also tells about men who almost made it but failed.
For example, the rich young ruler, or King Agrippa, who admitted they were “almost persuaded.” These men apparently died near the door but not inside it. Our World is full of religious men who are so close yet so far.
In my high school days, how long ago those days were. I was not committed at all. My favorite day of school was the last day. I was late to school, and I never paid much attention. I just didn’t have the desire to put forth the effort.
If I was to live a Christian life like my high school days, I would never make it.
The key to living a committed lifestyle for Him is yielding/surrendering our lives to the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.”
This verse tells me that plans are not made on our own THEN committed to the Lord.
Three words that sums this up Commitment involves work
What are some ways that you can be committed?
- Prayer life
- Get in the Word
