Charles Spurgeon

As you can see, commitment is essential to the Christian life.

There were times when the only thing that kept me going was that I made a commitment to Christ and I was not going to walk away from that.

Whether you are struggling with a commitment to God, or commitment to the church, or dedication to your marriage, or commitment to serving others.
