Fully Committed

“For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him…”—2 Chronicles 16:9.

God is constantly looking for people who are fully committed to him. Some doubt God’s existence. Others actively oppose God. But most of the people you know probably would say that they are on God’s side. Many of these would fall woefully short in the commitment department. Yet that is what God is looking for—men, women and young people who are fully committed to him.

How would you describe the lives of people who are fully committed to God? I think you could safely say that they regularly gather together with other believers for the purpose of worship (Hebrews 10:25). They take prayer seriously (1 Thessalonians 5:17). They not only study the Bible, they put its teachings into practice (James 1:22). They put God’s kingdom first (Matthew 6:33) and do their best to practice the golden rule (Matthew 7:12). The evidence of the Holy Spirit is abundant in their lives (Galatians 5:22-23).

There are many other ways that a person could show that they are fully committed to God. What would you add to the above list?

Let’s always keep in mind that God is looking for people who are fully committed to him.

Does he see such a person when he looks at you?
