I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The die 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, my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, and warped goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live in faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, lift up my voice in prayer, and labor with power.
My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Heaven My road is narrow, the way is rough, 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 adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I will not give up, let up, or shut up until I have stayed up, stored up, and paid up for the cause of Christ. I must go until He comes, give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He stops me. And when He returns for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be flying high.
