John 2:25 “But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, and he need not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.”
The value of our commitment to Christ will only be the measure of His commitment to us! The Lord Jesus Christ refused to commit to the people in the verse above during His day. He was not committed to any political inclination that day, nor in the Jewish nation being in the Roman yoke! He was not committed to the pressing social problems of His time, nor to what will the Rabis of His day will say to Him. Christ was not even committed to the needs of this perishing world. He was neither unmindful nor unmoved by all these other issues, but as Perfect Man, HE WAS COMMITTED TO THE WILL OF HIS FATHER ALONE, and for that only to which His Father was committed in Him also exclusively!
The basis of His commitment to the will of His Father is the basis upon which the Lord Jesus Christ claims your commitment to Him. You are committed to Him for all that to which He is committed in you also exclusively! You are not committed to a church, nor to a pastor, nor to a denomination, nor to an organization. If you are a missionary, you are not committed to a Mission Board nor even to a mission field. YOU ARE COMMITTED TO CHIRST ALONE! The same as Christ is committed in you, and again I say exclusively!”
