I. The Call to Commitment: (Romans 12:1) 

In Romans 12:1, the Apostle Paul implores us to present our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. This divine calling is our commitment to the Lord, acknowledging His mercy and dedicating our lives as an offering to Him. Commitment begins with the recognition that we are not our own but have been bought with a price—Christ's sacrifice on the cross.

II. A Willing Heart: (Psalm 51:10)

Psalm 51:10 calls us to create a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us. A willing heart is central to our commitment to God. It signifies our readiness to be molded by the Holy Spirit and our desire to align our desires and motives with God's will. A willing heart is crucial in ensuring that our commitment is not forced but flows from a place of love and devotion.

III. Serve God Faithfully: (1 Corinthians 15:58)

Commitment to God is not just about our intentions; it's also about our actions. In 1 Corinthians 15:58, we are reminded to stand firm and immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. This is a call for faithful service, no matter the circumstances. Our commitment to God is demonstrated through our steadfast labor in His vineyard, knowing that our toil is not in vain.

IV. Obedience as a Demonstration of Commitment: (John 14:15)

Jesus said, "If you love me, you will keep my commandments" (John 14:15). Obedience is the litmus test of our commitment to God. It shows that we are not merely lip-service Christians but people who follow God's will wholeheartedly. Obedience solidifies our commitment, serving as a demonstration of our love for the Lord.

V. Testimony of Our Commitment: (Matthew 5:16)

Our commitment to God should shine as a radiant testimony for all to see. As Matthew 5:16 tells us, we are to let our light shine before others so that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven. Our lives should reflect the love, grace, and transformation brought about by our commitment to Christ.

VI. Sharing the Gospel is a commitment to God: (Matthew 28:19-20)

One of the most significant commitments we can make to God is to share the Gospel. In the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), we are commissioned to go and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey everything Christ has commanded. This is a profound commitment that extends the hope of salvation to others, ensuring that our faith reaches far and wide.

VII. God's Promise to the Committed: (Hebrews 11:6)

Finally, Hebrews 11:6 assures us that God rewards those who diligently seek Him. Our commitment to God is not in vain; it is met with divine approval and reward. In our dedication, we find a deeper and more intimate relationship with the Lord, experiencing His faithfulness and the fulfillment of His promises.
