I am a part of the unashamed. I have been endued with “Holy Ghost Power.” The die has been set. I have crossed over the line. My decision is sure. I am a disciple of “His.” I won’t shrink back, let up, slow down, back away or be still. My past is covered under the blood, my today is redeemed and my future is secure. I’m finished with low-living, sight-seeing, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap giving and dwarf goals.
I no longer need the accolades of this world. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded by man. I now live by faith, learn by prayer and labor by God’s power.
My face is set, my destination is heaven, my road narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few. My guide is reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bribed, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy nor ponder at the pool of popularity.
I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up and preached up for the cause of Jesus Christ. I am called to be one of Christ’s remnant people. I belong to Him and none other. I must press on until He comes, give until I am out, preach until I drop and work until He stops me. I must testify to all that one more might hear and be drawn from the flaming darkness that desires to consume them. I must reach for another and touch but one more. When Jesus returnes He will have no problem recognizing me. My call and election will be sure, for I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
