FELLOWSHIP OF THE UNASHAMED
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 Jesus 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 am finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tames visions, worldly talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, position, promotions, 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 am uplifted by prayer and labor with power. My face is set, my gait is fast; my goal is heaven. My road i 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 adversary, 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 'til 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.
