February 18 | Committing to God

February 18, 2022


“Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” Acts 20:32

Read: Acts 20:32
Acts 20


Paul gathers with the Ephesian church leaders (whom he loves dearly) for the last time. He knows trouble is coming, and many believers in Ephesus will fall prey to the enemy and let distortions draw them from the truth. Some of them will even turn against God and become destructive to the well-being of the Jesus community. He wants church leaders to prepare.

We can experience the same kind of heartbreak when we see those we love fall prey to the enemy and walk away from their faith. It may be a close friend, spouse, or child who claims Jesus as Savior but chooses a path away from God that leads to destruction.

Paul commits his Christian family to God and the word of his grace—and so should we. When fellow believers are drawn away from God, at the end of the day, we need to release them into the hands of our gracious God, who loves them more than we do. Continue to pray for them and demonstrate love and mercy the same way Jesus does.


Listen to the song “God So Loved.” And embrace the words. If your heart is breaking over someone who has walked away from the faith, please email us at We would love to come alongside and give you support.


Develop spiritual roots and tap in the power of God’s word by memorizing monthly a Bible verse!

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
