18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

Thank You, O Lord God Almighty.  You commit to us … and we choose to commit to you.  Or not.  Our choice.  Thank You, Father, that we can choose.  I choose to commit my life to You, Lord God.

Commit to the Lord:

Serve Him only

He will deliver you



Strengthen those fully committed to Him


Deliver me

Your righteous reward shine

He will establish your plans

The Son chooses to reveal Him

My Spirit into Your hands

Put their trust

Build you up

Give you an inheritance

Continue to do good

Thank You Father.  May Your Word fill our hearts, our minds, our souls and our spirits–You feed and nourish us.  Commit to the Lord.  Your plans, O LORD.  May they be established.

In Jesus name.  Amen
