Are you interested or are you committed?

Philippians 1:23 - 24 For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.(NKJ)

I came across this phrase in a writing magazine that literally jumped off the page. The phrase was, ĻIs your writing an interest or is it a commitment?Ļ Very challenging.

This same line can be applied to our Christian walk. Is our walk with the Lord an interest, or is it a commitment? How far are we wiling to go with the Lord? Do we back out when it gets too close, or do we say that God would never call to me to do a work for Him?

In my early days of knowing the Lord, I was what you would call a pew warmer. I went on Sundays, received what I wanted and left. The rest of the week was just going about my business, but Sundays for an hour or two was of the Lords.

As I grew and matured, I desired more of God in my every day life. I began devoting more time to Him, and thus saw my life change. It is still changing, and I donīt ever expect my life to stop changing. I expect to receive continual revelation and wisdom from Him.

The Apostle Paul was so committed to Jesus, that he endured many trials and hardships. So much so that he knew that it was better to remain in the flesh for the sake of the gospel.

Is there an area in your life that needs to be recommitted to the Lord? Thatīs not a problem with Jesus. Just recommit that area and begin to see a that change coming. Challenge yourself to change and to serve Him at a higher level. The benefits are awesome!
