Nehemiah: Commitment Issues

Nehemiah 10

Many of us struggle to make commitments, whether it’s commitment to an employer, a diet, or a significant other. We may feel tempted to think of commitment in negative terms, as if we’re “closing doors,” “boxing ourselves in,” or “eliminating options.” But, as we will see in Nehemiah 10, when it comes to our spiritual lives, it is of vital importance if we are going to remain faithful to Christ, that we make commitments to the Lord and to the fellow believers in our spiritual community.
