Making Vows

When we sense the presents of the Lord during a service, our hearts rejoice and we are often overwhelmed with thanksgiving. Vows of dedication pour from our lips in the midst of our praise.

If God is calling us to action, we need to make a vow of commitment, but the writer of Ecclesiastes warns us, “When you make a vow to God, do not delay to pay it: For he has no pleasure in fools.”

Vows are to be made after careful consideration. Only God knows our future, therefore our vows should always consist of the words, “If it be your will Lord” (Ecclesiastes 5:2; James 4:13).
