A Challenging Quote

(author unknown)

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.

I won’t look back, let up, slow down, or back away.

My past is redeemed,
My present makes sense,
And my future is secure.

I am finished and done with low-living, sight-walking, small-planning, smooth-knees, colorless dreams, tame visions, mundane-talking, chincy-giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no long need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotion, or popularity.
I don’t have to be first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded.

My face is set;
My gait is fast,
My goal is Heaven,
My road is narrow,
My Guide is reliable,
My mission is clear.

I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.

I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice,
Hestitate in the presence of adversity,
Negotiate at the table of the enemy,
Ponder at the pool of popularity,
Or meander on the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up, shut up, or let up ‘til I’ve preached up, prayed up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus.
I must go ‘til I drop,
Preach all that I know,
And work ‘til He comes.

And when He comes to get His own, by the grace of God, He’ll have no trouble recognizing me. My colors are clear.
