Only committed people can eventually have breakthroughs. The breakthroughs in science and technology today have been the result of countless hours spent in trying and working towards finding viable solutions to pressing human challenges. When we take a look at the story of Moses in the Bible, we all see a great example of commitment.
When he came to Egypt, he immediately approached the Pharaoh and asked that the Children of Israel be set free. He was met with fierce resistance. Moses brought down several plagues but the Egyptians didn’t budge. They remained hard hearted and wanted to keep the people perpetually in slavery. God showed up in the end by sending one final plague that ended up wiping out the firstborn from every household, including the animals. Moses stayed committed to the end to see that the Children of Israel were brought out safely from the shackles of bondage and slavery.
In order for people to be committed to a certain task or goal, there has to be a vision that is binding them together. In a place where there is no vision, the people behave anyhow. They do not know how to work or what is expected of them. Vision brings focus, direction, and commitment when it is cast before the people. When Jesus came on the scene in the gospels, scripture records that he called disciples unto himself. He simply called out to them saying he was going to make them fishers of men. There was something in that statement that attracted the men to him. They seemed to have grasped the vision immediately. He mentioned that he was going to make them fishers of men.
Vision brings focus, direction, and commitment when it is cast before the people.
The vision Jesus gave them allowed them to leave what they were doing and some even left their parents behind just to follow Jesus on his many missions all through his life time. They abandoned all and followed Jesus. They served faithfully and with their whole heart. Jesus taught them many things and they lived to become the apostles who turned around the world for good.
Their commitment was the result of the things Jesus did. They say Jesus not only taught the word, but, practiced the word before them. They saw how he raised the dead. They saw how he healed the sick, fed the hungry people, touched the leper, calmed the storms, and even walked on water. All these persuaded them that they were not disciples of Scribes or Pharisees, but that they were really working with the Son of God himself. Jesus revealed himself further to Peter, James, and John on the mount. All these and more made them committed. And in the end, they were able to take the gospel to many nations by the power of God working through them.
When each person is committed to the vision, the possibility of breakthroughs is increased. Also, the leader is expected to clearly define the roles and responsibilities of each person on the team. When each one knows what is expected of them, this creates a synergy as everyone works together to achieve the common goals and vision. Nothing really should be left to chance or for the people to figure out themselves.
People must be briefed and instructed repeatedly to know what to do to ensure that the collective goals are met.
In order to ensure people are committed, there must be constant communication. People must be briefed and instructed repeatedly to know what to do to ensure that the collective goals are met.
