I choose to put Jesus first above myself and everything else in my life. I will firstly become a student of the life and actions of Jesus Christ allowing me to emulate Jesus in everything I do.
(MATTHEW 28:19-20; JOHN 8:31; 2 TIMOTHY 2:19; LUKE 14; MATTHEW 5:16; JOHN 15:8)
I will submit to Jesus as the Head of my home and through His guidance take up the role as the Head in my home. I will serve my family in a way that God will look at me as he looked to Jesus and said “This is My Son in whom I am well pleased.” I will be their nourishment feeding from the Word of God constantly. I will draw my strength from Jesus so that I can be the support for my wife. Just like Jesus is my covering in front of God I will be the covering for my wife.
(EPHESIANS 5:25; GENESIS 3:11-12; 1 TIMOTHY 5:8; EPHESIANS 5:23; PROVERBS 31:10-11; 1 PETER 3:7; 1 TIMOTHY 5:14; PHILIPPIANS 2:3; EPHESIANS 5:31; SONG OF SOLOMON 8:1; COLOSSIANS 3:19; EPHESIANS 5:26; ESTHER 5:3; DEUTERONOMY 6:2)
I will take up God’s call and be a mentor, hearing God’s voice and filling myself with the knowledge imparted to me through His Word and the Holy Spirit. I will sacrifice myself and my time for the one’s God places on my way for mentoring.
(1 PETER 5:1-3; MARK 3:14; 1 THESSALONIANS 2:6; ACTS 8:27-31; 1 CORINTHIANS 11:1; DEUTERONOMY 6:4-8; PHILIPPIANS 4:9 )
I will raise myself to the level of distinction that is called for by the Lord. Regardless of the circumstances, through diligence, fairness and obedience, I will address every situation to bring honour to His Name.
(PROVERBS 10:4; EPHESIANS 6:5-8; PHILIPPIANS 2:3-4; PROVERBS 10:4; COLOSSIANS 3:23; MALACHI 3:5; LEVITICUS 19:13; MATTHEW 5:13-15; TITUS 2:9-10; 1 PETER 2:18; ECCLESIASTES 2:4; COLOSSIANS 3:22)
I will not lead my friends to stagger but rather be there for strength, advice and upliftment. My friendship will always be based on unconditional love and acceptance with Christ as the nucleus because a threefold cord is not easily broken.
(1 SAMUEL 18:1-3; PROVERBS 12:26; PROVERBS 16:28; PROVERBS 17:17; ECCLESIASTES 4:9-12; JOHN 15:13-15 )
I will be diligent in instructing my children in the ways of the Lord for their own development and spiritual well-being. My actions will serve as an example of living a Christ centered life, as I follow the example my Father in heaven has set for me.
(DEUTERONOMY 6:2; EPHESIANS 6:4; 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17; PROVERBS 22:6)
I will be accountable to God and my fellow men of God, allowing us to be answerable to one another and challenging one another to grow in Christ.
(1 THESSALONIANS 5:12-14; 1 PETER 5:5; EPHESIANS 5:21; 1 CORINTHIANS 4:1-2; MATTHEW 28:19-20)
