Why Commitment Can Make or Break an Organization
When commitment is strong in a ministry, it is palpable in the air. It is known by all who walk through the doors. The ability to be and remain committed is one key to success in life and leadership. Commitment in this regard falls on more than just the leader. Yes, the leader should remain committed to moving the church to the next level, but leaders and parishioners should as well.
“Commit thy works unto the Lord, and they thoughts shall be established.” Proverbs 16:3. When you do the Lords will and follow his command, you are rewarded. Blessings reign down, deserved and undeserved. Working to advance the Kingdom and leading your followers to the Lord is still a commitment to the Lord. Your work, your actions, that align with Biblical teachings represents your commitment to the Lord and your faith in Him. When all hearts are one, goals are accomplished and new levels are achieved. When you have different agendas or your interest doesn’t rest in positively impacting the church, things can go haywire.
“And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayer.” Acts 2:42. Those who fall under the leader should also commit. How can they be trusted to advance the Kingdom if they are not following Biblical teachings or the head of the church? Their desires for the church should be the same as the church leader’s. Being committed to the pastor’s teachings of the Bible, fellowshipping, and praying with the pastor and one another is also a commitment to the Lord, which is rewarded. Conspiring against the pastor’s teachings, gossiping, or seeking self-gratification is detrimental to the health of the organization and can spread like cancer causing the collapse of the entire ministry.
