Commitment to Christ
The Grace of God is what powers our Christian life, our Growth in Christ, our walking with Him. In other words, our life in Christ is "Grace driven". It is God's Grace that changes us, Grace that reforms us, Grace that sanctifies us. We are being saved by God's Grace, not by our Faith.
However, on our part, Jesus expects us to respond to Him --- and this response is our Faith. Faith is our Trusting in Christ. It is the personal response that we make to God who is saving us, loving us, and desiring us to grow into union with Him.
All Christians believe in Christ, some more some less, but many have not made a Verbal Commitment to Christ --- perhaps because they have never thought of it. Your Commitment to Christ is similar to 2 people in love, who one day say to each other "I love you". They may have loved each other for quite a while, but the physical act of saying it outloud to each other, moves their relationship to a new level. So it is with our Faith. It is one thing to believe that Jesus is Saviour and Lord --- it is another thing to actually say it to Christ --- out loud. And when said outloud among others, it strengthens each other in our mutual commitment to Christ and to one another.
To be sure that everyone is given that chance, the act of Verbal Commitment of yourself to Christ is build into the liturgy of Baptism and Confirmation. In a very special way, in the Eucharist, to actually get out of your seat, to come forward and to stand or kneel at the Altar Rail, to extend your hands, to say "Amen" to Jesus, and to Receive the Body and Blood of Christ is a verbal weekly affirmation of your Faith in Christ as your Saviour and Lord.
If you haven't yet made a verbal Commitment of your life to Christ, and would like some help doing so, speak to Fr. Ron or to any priest --- he would be glad to help you, and you'll be glad you did. Making such a verbal Commitment of your life to Christ will help you move to a new and deeper level in your journey with Christ.
