Pivotal Moments of Faith

January 25, 2015

FAITH COMMITS

 

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.” Mat. 22:37-38

 

Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Cor. 10:31

 

WHAT COMMITMENTS DO

 

1. Show my values.

2. Shape my life.

3. Determine my destiny.

 

THE PRICE OF COMMITMENT

 

“If you want to be my follower you must love me more than your own father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters – yes, more than your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple”. Luke 14:26 (NLT)

 

I GIVE GOD…

 

  • THE FIRST THOUGHTS OF EACH DAY.

Each morning I will look to You in heaven and lay my requests before You. Psa. 5:3 (TLB)

 

  • THE FIRST DAY OF EVERY WEEK.

On the first day of the week, we all met together, Acts 20:7 (NCV)

 

  • THE FIRST TEN PERCENT OF EVERY PAYCHECK.

Honor the Lord by giving Him the first part of all your income. Prov. 3:9 (TLB)

 

  • THE FIRST CONSIDERATION IN EVERY DECISION.

With all your heart you must trust the Lord and not your own judgment. Always let him lead you, and he will clear the road for you to follow. Prov. 3:5-6 (CEV)

 

PITFALLS TO COMMITMENT

 

1. WE GET DISTRACTED.

"The attractions of this world, the delights of wealth, the search for success and the lure of nice things come in and crowd out God." Mark 4:19 (TLB)

 

2. WE BECOME COMPLACENT.

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Rom. 12:11

 

 

THE PAYOFF FOR COMMITMENT TO CHRIST

 

“Do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' Your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Mat. 6:31-33

 

"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness.’” Mat. 25:23 (NIV)
