Resolution vs. Commitment
“, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…”
Resolution vs. Commitment Recently, a pastor spoke on the difference between resolution and commitment. In short, resolution is “saying” while commitment is “doing” and because “actions speak louder than words”, my New Year Commitment is to ardently pursue God and His word. Cultivate the Relationship Romans 10:17 says “So then faith comes by hearing (reading) and hearing (understanding) by the word of God.” The action cultivates the relationship between my heart and God’s heart and understanding of Him deepens with consistency. The Faith "F" The Faith aspect of MD5 has the unique quality of being the nucleus of the five “F”s, overlapping with each of the others. As my faith grows through understanding, I will observe the impact within the others. For example, if I consistently tithe and cheerfully and generously give, God will pour out blessings, according to His word, which will in turn expand my faith. The key is consistent commitment. Expanding Faith Biblical faith should be a verb, an action. Through commitment to expanding my faith, I am enlarging His dwelling place within my heart, ensuring that He always feels welcome and has room for expansion.
