My Christian Commitment

I came across this over the weekend and just had to share it.  I believe these are words to live by.  I hope it challenges you.  It has certainly challenged me.  And, I want to thank you for praying for my mom.  Please continue to pray.  Her blood pressure remains very high.  We know that our God is THE HEALER.

My Christian Commitment

I am a 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 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 is secure.

I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, worldly talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions 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, am uplifted by prayer, and labor by His power.

My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, and 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 adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder in the pool of popularity or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up, back up, 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 Christ.  I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know and work till He stops me. 

And when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me.  My banner will be clear.
