God is My Highest Good

This is a baptismal statement that Philip Henry wrote for his children (he was the father of Matthew Henry, author of the popular one volume commentary of the Bible)

I take God to be my chief end and highest good.

I take God the Son to be my prince and Savior.

I take God the Holy Spirit to be my sanctifier, teacher, guide, and comforter.

I take the Word of God to be my rule in all my actions and the people of God to be my people under all conditions.

I do hereby dedicate and devote to the Lord all that I am,
all that I have,
and all I can do.

And this I do deliberately, freely, and forever.

WOW
