A young African pastor who was martyred for his faith wrote
this the night before he was killed for refusing to renounce
Christ. It was written on a tattered piece of paper & found on
the bunk in his cell after his death.
I'm a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit Power.
The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has
been made. I'm a disciple of His. I won't look back, let up, back away or be still.
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
knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living,
and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits,
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, lift by prayer, and labor by power.
My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow,
my way rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my missions 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 adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder 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 and preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of
Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and
work till He stops me. And when He comes for his own, He will have no
problems recognizing me -- for my banner will be clear!
