Commitment is a response to the character of God.

Growing in faith is not something that happens by simply cramming information about the Bible into a child’s brain.

The knowledge in their head means nothing if we don’t help kids experience what that knowledge can do in their heart. To experience faith, we want kids to practice their faith and that takes commitment.

God keeps all His promises and puts His plans into action.

Because God has kept His promises to us, we can make a plan and stick to it.

One of the best plans you can make is to commit to an ongoing relationship with Jesus. Commit to practicing faith by reading God’s Word, praying to Him consistently, talking about Him with friends, and living out your faith every day.

Our Memory Verse for January comes from 1 Timothy 4:8 NIrV.

In 1 Timothy 4:8, we read, “Training the body has some value. But being godly has value in every way. It promises help for the life you are now living and the life to come.” So when you show commitment, you are making a plan and putting it into practice.
