Christianity – is not so simple you know? We use a lot of words that make little to no sense – and we do little to explain them. I have noticed there is a divide in this faith concerning what is and isn’t true about God…and that’s fun stuff but we need to deal with us – not God – so God can have wings for all I care.
Anyways, I have been thinking about one of these words – commitment. This is a word that is never used in current Christian circles concerning conversion (huge alliteration there in case you never noticed).
Think about it – what is conversion really all about anyways? Isn’t it just as simple as making a commitment to follow/enact the foundational teachings of/concerning God? That’s what seems obvious to me.
We come to faith – we say a prayer or what have you – and we basically are making an agreement to follow God. We can break that agreement at any time if we choose or we can continue in that commitment and build upon the foundation we’ve received.
It’s nothing more than a commitment to God – plain and simple. If some do not want to accept this commitment – that’s their choice…and if some do…that is also their choice. But nonetheless – it’s a commitment – like marriage is a commitment between mutual parties. There is always a choice of whether of not to keep the thing going or to terminate what was once good.
Commitment. Conversion. Contract. Covenant. Choice is the greatest of all these.
