I believe it was Zig Ziglar who said, “When you are committed to something you do it regardless. When you are interested in something you do when it is convenient.” As a Sunday School teacher are you interested or committed to making disciples and reaching people for Christ.
Last year, I was really committed to losing weight. For the first six months, I was committed to eating healthy and working out. Then in July, I had Oral Surgery and returned to eating soft foods, such as mashed potatoes and ice cream. My commitment turned to an interest in losing weight. Now a year later, I gained my weight back and need to become committed again to eating healthy and working out.
It is just as easy for Christians to become undisciplined in our quiet times and devotional lives. How many of us have become interested instead of committed in memorizing scriptures? How many are pretending not to know what it takes to grow a Sunday School and church? Simply unwilling to commit to the work of Sunday School. Instead, Sunday School is regulated to an event that happens on Sunday morning instead of a strategy for making disicples.
A friend reminded me that “It’s certainly better to go to the Recreation Center then to the Emergency Room.” The world is waiting for Christians to decide to not just be interested in being a Christian but to become committed to serving and worshipping Him. The world needs Sunday School leaders to decide to do what it takes to reach our world for Christ and see these new converts become fully devoted follower of Christ.
Let’s pray for one another to become committed and not just interested in becoming physically and spiritually fit.
The Bible states, “Whatever you do in word or deed, do it all for the Glory of God.”
