Declaration of Dependence

Whereas: God is the Creator and Supreme Ruler of the Universe, Who existed before all things and in Him all things consist (Genesis 1:1; Colossians 1:17); and I was created by His will and for His glory (Revelation 4:11); but,

Whereas: I have inherited a sin nature from my forefather, Adam, (Romans 5; I Corinthians 15), and I myself have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), I therefore deserve death (Romans 6:23); but,

Whereas: When I was yet a sinner, God loved me so much that He gave His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for me, redeem me, and give me the gift of Eternal Life by His grace (John 3:16; Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:8,9); and,

Whereas: He has given me His precious Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, to be my Comforter, Teacher, Guide, and Seal of my Redemption (John 14-16);

Therefore, Be It Resolved That: I hereby declare my complete Dependence upon my Creator, and confess my total inability to save myself. I acknowledge my sins and purpose by His grace to turn from them.

I gratefully trust my God for the gift of Eternal Life in His Son, Jesus Christ, Whom I also acknowledge and submit to as Lord. I  yield to the work of His Spirit in my life and commit my life, in time and in eternity, into His loving Hands.
