Keeping Commitments

(Acts 28:16-25, 28-31)

Lesson 13 -- third quarter 2010
August 29, 2010

Introductory questions to chew

If I had government guards, would they trust me?

Would "the hope of Israel" ever get me in trouble?

What do I know about "persuading them concerning Jesus"?

How well do I hear?

Does God want to heal me?

Am I supposed to have a commitment to teach "those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ"?

Open eyes, teachable heart

"Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths" (Psalm 25:4).

By making that request, I'm expressing a commitment to live by His ways and walk in His paths.

Otherwise, why should He show me and teach me?

And why would I lightly make such a request from God Himself?

So, yes, I will open my eyes so that I may see His ways when He shows them to me.

And yes, I will learn His paths when He teaches them to me.

And yes, I will live by His ways and walk in His paths.

Those are my commitments, so help me, God.

What kind of commitments toward Himself does God require of me?

Can I trust Him and love Him enough to stick my neck way out and give Him a blank check?

Dare I say, "Lord, whatever You tell me to do, I will do my best to do"?

This concludes my comments based on the passage for the International Bible Study. To read my comments on the alternate lesson developed by Christian Light Publications, click here: Honorable in Public Life.
