THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE UNASHAMED
I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed
The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made
I AM A DISCIPLE OF CHRIST
I won’t look back, let up, slow down, or be still
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure.
I’m finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals
I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, plaudits, or popularity
I don’t have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.
I now live by faith, lean on HIS PRESENCE, walk with patience
I am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power.
My face is set, my goal is fast, my goal is Heaven
My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear!
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the advisory, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won’t give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up FOR the CAUSE OF CHRIST.
I must go till he comes, give til I drop, preach til ALL know, and work til He stops me.
And when he returns for his own, he will have no problem recognizing me!
My banner will be clear
“FOR I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERYONE THAT BELIEVETH!
