Fellowship of Unashamed

I am part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed.  I have Holy Spirit power.  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, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed - my present makes sense - my future is secure.  I'm finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarf goals.  I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudit approval, or popularity.  I don’t 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 goal is heaven.  My road is narrow, my way rough. My companions few; my God reliable; my mission clear!

I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted, 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 popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.  I won't give up; shut up, or let up until I’ve stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and preached up in the cause of Christ!  I am a Disciple 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 comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me - my Banner will be clear.
