“Commitment is the enemy of resistance, for it is the serious promise to press on, to get up, no matter how many times you are knocked down.” David McNally
Several definitions could be given for commitment, but I do love this one.
Occasionally, life is going to knock us down. We may even get knocked down a few more times than we think is our share.
However, are we committed to the cause enough to keep getting up no matter how many times we get knocked down?
I also see powerful thought in the idea of commitment being the enemy of resistance. When we are committed to the cause, we will oppose resistance, both our own or others.
When we are committed we are motivated.
When we are committed we have dedication.
When we are committed we keep our focus.
When we are committed we will stop at nothing.
Nothing is more deserving of our commitment than the cause of Jesus. His life, as an example, His death, as a sacrifice for sin, is worthy of our motivation, dedication, focus and determination to press on, whatever it takes.
