A Weekend Of Redefining Commitment

When soldiers begin their training in the military, they leave behind everything they've ever learned. Their drill instructors will break them down so they can be built back up as good soldiers, experts in their chosen fields and better people in mind and body.

They'll also find that their priorities change. Selfishness is laid aside, exchanged for determination, responsibility and respect. Their commitment level soars as they focus on their mission, their fellow soldiers and their country.

And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, to keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good. Deuteronomy 10:12-13

Make this a weekend of redefining your commitment. Just as Moses explained it to the people of Israel, he explains it to us as well. The only thing that God requires is your full and total commitment. There can be nothing else in your life that is more important than Him, and He will find uncomfortable ways to remove them if they are. He expects for your focus to be 100 percent on Him 100 percent of the time.

This commitment means walking the path He has called you to, giving Him all of your love, honoring Him with your service and keeping His commandments. Coming from an earthly boss, leader or commander this would seem over the top and unreasonable, but not so with the Lord. It is the honor that is due Him by each of His children every day.
