“Commitment is a definite, well-considered act in which a person turns his or her life over to the Lord so that He can do whatever He wants with it. It is exchanging our will for His. It is giving up our rag-rights and acknowledging His throne-rights. It is abandoning all for the One who abandoned all for us.
In every life there is a throne. The natural occupant of that throne is self. Commitment is when that self is dethroned and the Lord Jesus is crowned King.”
-from p.39 of “My Heart, My Life, My All” by William MacDonald.
