Commitment: Definition and Challenge

I’ve been meditating on what it means to be a committed Christian recently. So, I thought I’d start with a simple dictionary definition. Commitment is “the act of binding yourself (intellectually or emotionally) to a course of action; the trait of sincere and steadfast fixity of purpose; a message that makes a pledge.” To commit is to “give entirely to a specific person, activity, or cause,” in this case, Christ. Then I came across this poster on Pinterest and thought it had some good ideas.

So, how committed are you? I challenge you to take an inventory of your own life. Take the 10 commitment areas above and rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 for each. Then pick one of the areas that had a lower score and ask God to grow you in that area over this next month.

I’m asking God to grow me in the area of being more committed to prayer. I’d love to hear what area you’re asking God to grow you in this next month! God bless!
