“Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven.” Luke 6: 23
Commitment to excellence means “no compromise”. It means that you deliberately apply action to what you believe. It is a pledge to do what you set out to do, no matter the sacrifice it requires. It is a lifestyle of integrity, consistency and purpose. It is being connected to something bigger that yourself and intentional in all things. Commitment is staying strong in your conviction when it’s no longer convenient.
“The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.”
We were created to serve God.
Where are you seeking fulfillment and purpose? You may find temporary fulfillment and purpose in things and people, but permanent, deep, full purpose of your very being is only found in a right relationship with God for Whom you were created.
Not only is your being created for God, but your doing is created for God also. You and I were created for commitment to serve God. In everything we do from curling our hair, feeding our family, cleaning our home, serving at church to volunteering at a soup kitchen; we do it to service to Him.
Commitment is easy to talk about, but challenging to put into action. It takes an incredible amount of discipline to stay on course. Knowing this, get an accountable partner to hold you to your physical goals; this will lead to personal success. Be a finisher of the goals you put in place and serve God whole heartedly in all your doings.
