Commit to God Not Religious Practice

Committing yourself to know God more fully means you can trust Him more fully, too. Give your concerns to God and don't snatch them back. Trust Him in spite of what it looks like to handle every situation in your life. Most importantly, learn who He is so that trust comes easily. One way you can express your love for God is by being committed to Him. This is what love is really all about: commitment. You don’t really love somebody unless you’re committed to their best. God is committed to our best. Nothing significant ever happens in life without commitment. Your commitments determine your future. You are becoming whatever you are committed to, so choose your commitments carefully. If you’re committed to the wrong thing, you’re going to become the wrong thing and vice versa. You can’t lose by being committed to God. The Bible tells us in 2 Chronicles 16:9 that God is looking for people whose hearts are fully committed to Him so that He can bless and use them. What does it mean to be fully committed to God?

• Giving my life to Jesus Christ.
• Committing my life to His family—the body of Christ, which is the church—and joining a church family.
• Choosing to grow spiritually and become more and more like Jesus Christ everyday in my character.
• Using my talents and gifts to help others.
• Sharing the good news with other people and fulfilling the mission and purpose God put me on this earth to do.

Don’t let your commitment to God become a religious act, stay committed to Him and not the act.
