Declaration of Sonship

 

Declaration of Sonship

 

Now that you have received a Father’s blessing my son, I would like you to repeat after me the following declaration of sonship before God and man.

1.            I DO solemnly resolve before God to take full responsibility for myself; my wife, and my children.

2.            I WILL love them, protect them, serve them, and teach them the Word of God as the spiritual

              leader of my home.

3.            I WILL be faithful to my wife, to love and honor her, and be willing to lay down my life for her as

              Jesus Christ did for me.

4.            I WILL bless my children and teach them to love God with all of their hearts, all of their minds,

              and all of their strength.

5.            I WILL train them to honor authority and live responsibly.

6.            I WILL confront evil, pursue justice, and love mercy.

7.            I WILL pray for others and treat them with kindness, respect, and compassion.

8.            I WILL work diligently to provide for the needs of my family.

9.            I WILL forgive those who have wronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged.

10.          I WILL learn from my mistakes, repent of my sins, and walk with integrity as a man answerable

              to God.

11.          I WILL seek to honor God, be faithful to His church, obey His Word, and do His will.

12.          I WILL courageously work with the strength God provides to fulfill this declaration for the rest of

              my life and for the glory of God.

 13.       As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. JOSHUA 24:15
