My Commitment

Mv Commitment as a Christian

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made; I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I will not look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my presence makes sense, my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I do not have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear. I can not be bought, deluded 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, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I will not give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He stops me, and when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be clear!
