Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about commitment.
Commitment is the state of dedicating oneself to God. As Christians after we have accepted Jesus as our saviour and eternal peace, we then tell Him that we want Him to be the author and the finisher of our faith henceforth. By this way you have told Him that you are dedicating your life to Him and telling Him to handle every affairs of your life. Committing ourselves to God has so many benefits. Those who commit their lives to God will see His hands in everything they do.
When we say God I commit my life to you, it means that we are no longer the driver or director of our lives, it has been handed over to the Supreme God and surely He will lead us right. Although giving ourselves totally to God comes with it’s own challenges and problems, but God has promised to see us through. For instance we see that the commitments of christians and many believers in the scripture have been challenged whenever they’re going through difficulties and hardships. But we see that God fought for them and gave them eternal peace and rest.
We know it’s not easy to stay committed but let’s trust the Lord that those who wait on God will be rewarded greatly. When we feel lost and can’t go on anymore, the bible verses below is to encourage us and help us hold on tightly to our faith.

5. 1 Corinthians 13:1-8
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.
6. Joshua 24:15

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
8. Luke 14:26-27
