“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 this one has merit.
Occasionally, life is going to knock us down. We may get knocked down a few more times than we think is our share.
However, are we committed enough to the cause 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, of both ourselves 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, and His death, as a sacrifice for sin, is worthy of our motivation, dedication, focus, and determination to press on…whatever it takes.
