When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not shouting "I am saved." I'm whispering "I was lost"; That is why I chose this way.


When I say, "I am a Christian," I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble, And need someone to be my guide.


When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak, And pray for strength to carry on.


When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed, And cannot ever pay the debt.


When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are too visible, But God believes I'm worth it.


When I say, "I am a Christian," I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, Which is why I speak His name.


When I say, "I am a Christian," I do not wish to judge. I have no authority; I only know I am loved.

 

As Christians, we are part of the fellowship of the unashamed. We have Holy Spirit power. We have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. We're a disciple of His. We won't look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still. Our past is redeemed, our present makes sense, our future is secure. We're finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living and dwarfed goals. We no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, or popularity. We don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. We now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer and labor by power. Our face is set, our goal is heaven, our road is narrow, our way is rough, our companions are few, our guide reliable, our mission clear. We cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back. We 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 of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. We won't give up, shut up or let up until we have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, and preached up for the cause of Christ. We are a disciple of Jesus. We must go till He comes, give till we drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops us. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problems recognizing us, our banner will be clear.

Oath Of Allegiance To Christ

 

Christ with me, Christ in me,

Christ behind me, Christ before me,

Christ under me, Christ over me,

Christ to the right of me, Christ to the left of me,

Christ in my lying down, Christ in my rising up;

Christ, my all in all.
