Ray Orlund, the late and longtime former pastor of Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, California, made the following vows to God that are worth our reflection and emulating.
1. Vow to give God all the glory in all your success. 2. Vow to confess your sins and do a thorough job of repentance. 3. Vow never to say anything slanderous or destructive against any of God’s children. 4. Vow not to own anything. Leave all ownership to God. 5. Vow that while you live you will seek to live with enthusiasm and joy by the Holy Spirit.
