The fellowship of the unashamed
I am part of "The Fellowship of the Unashamed." I have Holy Spirit power, the die has been cast, I've stepped over the line, and the decision has been made. I'm a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future's secure. I'm finished and done with low living, side walking, small plans, smooth knees, colorless dreams, taint visions, mundane talking, chensey giving and warped goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, as products of popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognize traits, unguarded, or rewarded. I now live by presence, lead by faith, love by patience, live by prayer and labor, by power. My pace is set, my gait 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, deterred, moved away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not quench in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of my adversity, negotiate at the table of my enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander the ways of mediocrity. I won't give up, back up, let up or shut up, till I've preached, paid back, stored up and staked up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go till He returns, give till I drop, preach till I know and work till he comes. And when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My colors will be clear!!!
