Two Types of Commitment:
– Constraining commitment is forced
– Feels like a stifling of our freedom

– Dedication commitment is a choice
– Feels like an exercise of our freedom


The reason we tend to fall back on constraint commitments is that it places the responsibility of our commitment onto someone else.
– We want the results, but aren’t willing to shoulder the responsibility.
– I believe this give us insight into why “accountability partners/groups” so rarely work!  They are a constraint commitment.


I think the perfect example of this is the person of Jesus and his work on the cross.
Hebrews 12:1-2
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”


What are your physical, relational and spiritual commitments?  Are they marked by constraint or dedication?

Matthew 4:19-20

Walking along the beach of Lake Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers: Simon (later called Peter) and Andrew. They were fishing, throwing their nets into the lake. It was their regular work. Jesus said to them, “Come with me. I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men and women instead of perch and bass.” They didn’t ask questions, but simply dropped their nets and followed.

The call to follow Jesus is a call to transformation. He does not leave us as He finds us. He leaves no area of our lives untouched: family relationships, friendships, our perspective on life, work, leadership and the world in which we live, all are fair game. Jesus doesn’t come to justify our current lives, He comes to call us to real life. Are you ready to trade in your life to find real life? Are you ready to follow Him?

One of the things that resonates with me, about F3, is the way I’ve been transformed by it – it creates more productivity in my day, encourages me, pushes me to be a leader and team player. Praying that we would all choose to lead where necessary in our lives, and follow as necessary.
