Jim Elliot


How many of us are truly committed to a cause? Whether it be church attendance and worship, reading and studying the bible, praying and fasting, relationships and marriage, our careers, and even our families. How many of us will stick it out to the end, no matter how hopeless and impossible the situation seems? Society has given us too many options to retreat and run when things start to get a little shakey. Back in the day, marriage was truly until death do you part. All of my grandparents, great grandparents, aunts and uncles, and our parents knew that no matter how hard things got at home, on the job and even in church, there was no other choice but to stay. But nowadays our society is instant this and instant that. A quickie marriage and an even quickie divorce, sermons you can buy instead of going to church and assembling ourselves to get strength from other believers to carry us through the week. But God has always wanted us to put Him first, not out of obligation, but because of true love. If we would just put everything back in it's rightful order, God would pour out many of His blessings on our lives, and we wouldn't be stumbling and falling over every little thing that comes our way. Somebody's prayers, sweat and tears paved the way for us to be where we are today. And we should be committed and dedicated to the call of God and pave the way, and be an example to those coming behind us. If we show that we are committed to everything we are involved in, there are those that are watching us, and patterning their lives after us. Romans 12:2 says, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
