Decide, Commit, Repeat

In honor of Shari Miller...

Decide, Commit, Repeat - Originally posted by Shari A. Miller May 20, 2021

Relationships take time and commitment. Imagine, if you never paid any time or attention to your spouse? That would not make for a very fruitful marriage. Neither spouse would get the chance to truly know each other. It would be like you were married to a complete stranger.

Now imagine having the same type of attitude with God. If we never prayed, never read our Bible and never worshiped Him, the relationship with our Savior would be lifeless.

This week, I listened to part of a testimony of a young girl that I new when when she was just a baby. She said that, "A few years ago, I decided to crank up my relationship with Jesus a notch, and began reading my Bible every single day. And that decision has changed the depth of my relationship with Jesus. That's the number one thing that has deepened my relationship with Jesus. And that sort of relationship is cultivated by being people who are saturated in God's Word." - Robyn Schad

Rejoice in hope, patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. - Romans 12:12

If we want our relationship with Christ to grow, we need to do three things. 

  1. Decide - Each and every morning when we wake up we need to decide to make our relationship with God a priority.
  2. Commit - We need to commit to doing things that will deepen our relationship with God, such as, reading our Bible, praying and worshipping God.
  3. Repeat - We need to repeat steps one and two every day.
There are so many things to be anxious about in this world that can distract us from following these steps. However if we have a strong relationship in Christ we can depend on Him and not be so concerned with the things surrounding us. 

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to path. - Psalm 119:105

Are you ready to crank up your relationship with Jesus a notch? I know I am.

  1. Just a few days ago a friend posted this quote on FB: "Half our fears arise from neglect of the Bible"--Charles Spurgeon. Of course, scripture offers even more than an antidote to fear, valuable as that is. No wonder the psalmist wrote: "Instruction that comes from you is better for me than thousands of gold and silver coins" (Psalm 119:72 ISV).
