What is it that you are committed to?
generosity and commitment of our precious financial partners makes it
possible for us to go wherever God asks us to go and to do everything
He asks us to do.
For those of you that have not made that commitment to Tim Greenwood Ministries, what we are asking you to do, right now
as you read this, is to commit
to an amount, any amount, big or small, which divided across the next
12 months you can easily afford to help support this ministry. If you
are a Pastor, I ask that TGM be included in your annual missions
People are getting saved, healed and delivered. We are daily
diminishing the remnants of satan's kingdom. Everywhere we go, we are
teaching Christians not only how to resist the devil, but how to take
back all of the lost ground. Lives are being changed, but God is asking
us to do much more.
God works through people like you. Yes, your prayers are important and
appreciated, but it's going to take gifts of real estate, wills and
endowments, donations big and small and yes even the widow's mite to
get the job done. Right now is the most critical moment in the history
of this planet. The time for you to make a real difference is now.

wonderful day has arrived. The planning and preparing have all been
done and today you are giving the hand of your precious daughter in
marriage. And when the groom is asked if he promises to love, care for,
provide for and will remain faithful to your daughter and the marriage,
he replies, "Well I'll TRY!" "I'll sure give it my best shot!"
As the father of the bride, how are you going to feel about that? No
matter how sincere the good intentions of the groom may be, those
responses are certainly not a commitment. Your spouse, your employer,
your pastor and even God - is NOT INTERESTED in your good intentions!
However, they are ALL wanting, desiring and needing your voluntary
commitment. Why is commitment so important?
Romans 14:23 says whatever is not of faith, is sin. That is to say,
whatever is not done or said in good faith is, or will lead to, a
breach of contract, a breach of promise or a breach of relationship.
Therefore, attempting to enter into a contract, promise or
relationship, without committing to it, is an act of bad faith. A
letter of intent or a proposal is in no way equivalent to a signed
contract. It never has been and never will be.
James 2:17, 20, 26 says that faith without works is dead. That is to
say, a good faith contract, promise or relationship will not work
without commitment, or a good faith contract is worthless without your
Good faith, based on love, is the primary foundation of every
relationship of every kind. But in order for those relationships to be
mutually beneficial, commitment is required. All of the want to, hope
to and best good intentions in the world will not produce or fulfill a
mutually beneficial relationship.
Matthew 7:13-14 says, Enter through the narrow gate, because broad is
the gate and wide is the road which leads to loss, ruin and destruction
and yet many still choose that path. But narrow is the gate and narrow
is the path which leads to life, which few seem to find.
To explain this passage, let me ask you a question. Is it ok with you
for others to treat you in just any old way? Is it ok to lie to you,
cheat you, steal from you and deceive you? No, of course not! You want
others to treat you with respect, tell you the truth, and to keep their
word when they tell you they are going to do something. That's pretty
narrow, isn't it? Plus that broad, non-committal way of treating you
just any old way may cause you loss, ruin or destruction, no matter how
good their intentions may have been.
What Jesus is saying here, that despite what the majority seem to be
doing, He wants you to commit to treating others in this same narrow
way that you want to be treated.
God, throughout the Bible, has made you thousands of good faith
promises and offers which are designed to benefit you. But in order to
receive any of these benefits, these promises and offers must be
converted into signed contracts through your verbal good faith
commitment. All of the good intentions in the world are not enough to
receive anything from God. TGM
