Commit to Commitment

[176 words]

Paul gave young Timothy some great advice concerning commitment to the Lord. It is great advice for us, as well:

Commit to Faithfulness. “This charge I commit to you…that …you may wage the good warfare, having faith and a good conscience” (1 Tim. 1:18).

Commit to Defending the Truth. “Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge” (1 Tim. 6:20).

Commit to All of the Scriptures. “Hold fast the pattern of sound words…That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us” (2 Tim. 1:13-14)

Commit to Teaching Others. “And the things that you have heard …commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” (2 Tim. 2:2)

One last thing to note concerning this commitment to commitment. Paul knew and stated this: “I…am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day” (2 Tim. 1:12).
