In this new year you would do good to reaffirm your commitment to Jesus and express your continued love for Him, much like when wedding vows are renewed.

When a commitment is made to your spouse you are affirming that you give up all others for a life with them.

Commitment to Jesus is saying the same thing, “Jesus I give up all things for a life with you.”

When my husband and I were married I quoted part of what Ruth said to Naomi in Ruth 1:16-17 for my vows. “…where you go, I will go, where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.”

We can also make the same statement of commitment to Jesus by saying; Your God shall be my God, Your people my people, where You lodge I will lodge, where You go I will go.
