Modeling Commitment

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 1 Kings 15:9-24

After a few generations when we get to Asa (David's great great great grandson), we finally see a different attitude and heart toward God. Following in David's footsteps, Asa chooses to follow and serve God fully. A wise decision, but one that immediately puts the difficult task in front of him of ridding the country of false gods and idols. What impressed me so much about Asa was how he demonstrated top down leadership by stepping up and dealing with idol worship within his own family. That had to have been difficult, but it modeled to the people of Judah that he was absolutely committed to God.

What are some ways that you model your commitment to God at home? At work? At school? In your community? Tami

Yes I agree it is a challenge to do what Asa did in your own household but God is faithful and he gives the courage to do what it necessary.

Committing to live a life that is committed to God will naturally model itself as we live in front of people. One major thing Jesus pointed out was that all people would know that we were His by our love for one another. So, treating others--and, especially our fellow believers--with love is an important facet of modeling our commitment to God in front of others.
