Your Commitments Shape Your Life - Daily Hope with Rick Warren - July 20, 2021

Your Commitments Shape Your Life
By Rick Warren

“Since everything around us is going to melt away, what holy, godly lives we should be living!” 2 Peter 3:11 (TLB)

Your commitments shape your life more than anything else. Your commitments can develop you—or they can destroy you. But either way, they will define you.

Tell me what you’re committed to, and I’ll tell you what your life will look like in 20 years. You become whatever you’re committed to.

It’s around the idea of commitment where most people miss God’s purpose for their lives. Many people are afraid to commit to anything, so they just drift through life. Others make half-hearted commitments to competing values, which leads to frustration and mediocrity. Others make a full commitment to worldly goals, such as becoming wealthy or famous, and they end up disappointed and bitter.

Every choice has eternal consequences, so you need to choose wisely: “Since everything around us is going to melt away, what holy, godly lives we should be living!” (2 Peter 3:11 TLB).

The first wise decision you need to make is to follow Jesus. You don’t have to understand all the implications of that decision when you make it. You simply need to respond to his invitation and make a commitment to follow him.

Then, as you follow Jesus, commit to the things that build a holy, godly life. Christlikeness will come from making Christlike commitments.
