“I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The lines have been drawn. I have stepped over the edge. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of Christ, a Son of Righteousness; and I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.
My past is redeemed. My present is secure. My future is unstoppable. I’m finished with boxes, business as usual and safety nets. The days of breakthrough have come and I am no longer willing to settle for limited passion, small vision, safe plans, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed ideas and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need preeminence, position, promotions, popularity or applause. I don’t have to be right, or first, or tops, or recognized, or praised, or rewarded. I live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by Holy Spirit power.
My face is set. My gait is fast. My goal is heaven. My road may be narrow, my way rough, my companions few, but my Guide is reliable and my mission is clear.
I will not be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice or hesitate in the presence of the adversary. I will not negotiate at the table of the enemy, pander 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, prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus, the Christ; who was, is and forever will be the Anointed King of Glory. I must give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He comes. And when He does come for His own, He’ll have no problem recognizing me. My colors will be clear and my character will be clean! This is my claim without regret, this is where I stand… unashamed.”
