Lifestlye Difference Between Commitment and Interest

It’s important in life to recognise the difference between being interested and being committed. We are interested in many areas of life but that does not make us committed.

For instance, I am interested in politics. I read political biographies and follow the Australian political scene with great interest. But I have never joined a political party, have never run for office and never involved myself in a political campaign or given out how to vote cards for anyone. I may be interested in politics but I am not committed.

In the areas that really matter we need to make a commitment. That means we need to commit our time, energy, resources and skills. It is not enough to show interest in areas of importance, we need to demonstrate commitment.

This is crucially important in faith and belief. Jesus does not ask us to be interested in following Him. He actually asks us to put everything else aside and follow Him completely. This is really asking you to be more than interested. It's asking you to be committed.
