Pure and Holy: The Characteristics of Biblical Commitment

Brody Holloway : Romans 12 : Pure and Holy

We must be careful with what we allow to shape our thinking on things such as: who we are, who God is, relationships, dating, marriage, and sexuality. What we surround ourselves with will mold and influence our patterns of thinking and doing.

The Bible teaches us that we must commit ourselves and our lives to Jesus first, and only then can we commit to other things, other relationships, and other people. We are to be transformed by having our minds renewed daily. This comes from spending time in God’s Word and from setting our affections and our hearts on things of God. Commitment to Christ followed out in this way will lead to understanding God’s will for us and the ability to have wisdom and discernment.
