The New Testament uses 12 different Greek words to describe our English term “commit.” So when talking about real commitment we need to be very specific. Of the 45 times the word “commit” is found in the New Testament it is used in four general ways. First to describe sinful acts; second to explain items God committed to men; third to describe what God’s children have committed to the Lord; and finally what Christ did not commit to unredeemed men. This message will primarily focus on what God committed to His children and what He expects from them.
“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” – 2 Timothy 1:12
