WHAT ARE YOU COMMITTED TO?

INTRO:

A. IS THAT WORD --- COMMITMENT --- STILL APPLICABLE IN OUR SOCIETY TODAY

1. VERY MUCH SO

1. THE OBJECT OF COMMITMENT MAY HAVE CHANGED

2. I DON’T SEE A COMMITMENT IN SOME PEOPLE

SOME PEOPLE ARE COMMITTED TO BEING UNDER NO COMMITMENT

C. WE NEED TO EXAMINE OUR OWN (NOT OTHERS) TO MAKE SURE WE ARE COMMITTED TO THE RIGHT THINGS

I. FIRST --- COMMITTED TO GOD

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.MARK 12:30

Luke 12:31

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

A. REAL COMMITMENT IS NOT PART TIME - NOT ON A SWITCH - NOT ON AGAIN OFF AGAIN

B. REAL COMMITMENT IS NOT A SUNDAY THING.

A. NO SMALL WONDER THAT 50% OF ALL MARRIAGES END IN DIVORCE

19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

1. YOU MAY CALL ME A MALE CHAUVINIST BUT WOMEN’S LIB IS A TOOL OF SATAN TO TEAR THE FAMILY, AS GOD HAS ORDAINED IT, APART

2. GOD’S PLAN WILL WORK --- IF WE WORK IT
