HONOR OUR COMMITMENT
Whatever commitment you have made to God, honor it. If you have made a commitment at the altar to marry, honor that commitment. If God has blessed you to be a parent, honor that commitment. If God has blessed you to serve in the body of Christ in any capacity, honor that commitment. I would argue that too many people take vows with little thought about honoring their marriage and service commitments. I have seen it as people make commitments to walk with God. As soon as something uncomfortable happens, they walk away without remorse. Whatever commitment you have made to God, honor that commitment. The scripture reference Psalm 15:4.
“Those who despise flagrant sinners, and honor the faithful followers of the Lord, and keep their promises even when it hurts.”
The psalmist speaks of those who keep their commitment even when they are hurt. We honor God by living lives that are upright and pleasing unto Him. They refuse to take part in evil-doings. They keep their promise and vows that they have made unto the Lord. They stand firm on the Word of God. They cannot be easily moved. They live a life of integrity and honesty, and they are faithful in and out of season. The psalmist raises a question at the beginning of this chapter. “Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill? Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts.” God honors them because they have kept their commitment. I pray that whatever commitment you have made to God, you honor it. For some reason, if you have not, it is not too late to begin anew and honor the commitment once again.
