I see this as a church/societal problem…our music, movies, news, government, and unfortunately our church has lost the ability to be committed. I see this first in a lack of commitment to God & Jesus, the church(whether it be attendance, ministry, caring for each other). Dating is another form of this lack of commitment in our church and society…we are taught just to go from person to person to find the “right” one. Lack of commitment is all around us…and it is so basic for the believer to be committed..but we lack this in the church. Commitment takes on many forms…and when there is a lack of it…we all suffer.
I for my part am asking the Lord to help me be more committed to him in word and deed…hoping that those around especially the youth will see. Our “talking” is a form of commitment – we commit to speak his words in faith, not doubting, so that our testimony is one of a faithful believer. A big way that we can teach others commitment is to honor God as a faithful, covenant keeping committed to us God even in tough times. If we ourselves cannot see Jesus and Father as committed to us in our troubles, how can we tell the youth to be committed? Commitment starts with Jesus & ends with him… I want to teach everyone that Jesus is committed to me..and I will show that by my speech, actions, and motivations..
