“Commitment is denying self, taking up the cross, and following Him. It is losing one’s life for His sake and the gospel’s. It is flinging one’s soul and body down for God to plow them under. When you desire His will supremely and are giving Him the devotion of your heart and the love of your soul, you are a committed Christian.”
-from p.39-40 of “My Heart, My Life, My All” by William MacDonald.
