I Am a Disciple of Jesus Christ

"I"m a Disciple"
I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.
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.
The love of God controls me. The decision has been made. I'm a disciple of His. I won't look back, let up, slow down, or back away.
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 and ease, colorless dreams, mundane talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed roles.
I no longer need prosperity, position, promotion, preeminence, 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 in patience, live by prayer, and labor with power.
My face is set. My gait is fast. My goal is the Kingdom of God. My road is narrow. My way is rough. My companions few. My guide reliable. My mission clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversaries, negotiate at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won't give up, shut up, let up until I've stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, spoken up, for the cause of Christ.
I must go until He comes, give until I drop, teach until all know, run until He stops me.
I am a disciple of Jesus Christ
I'm not sure of the name of the author.
I love this! Our preacher read this at church last Sunday. He said it was written by a man who went to Africa to be a missionary. He died while in Africa, and this was found in his hut. I had heard it before and love the way the writer is so sold out for Jesus. I was thinking today that if Christians acted more like Jesus, there would probably be more of us.
