I love Jesus, how about you? I love my church, and my pastor too. I am 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 His. 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 sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, mundane talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, plaudits or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lifted by prayer, and labor by power.
My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, but my guide is reliable, and my mission is 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 the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity that every day religion has become.
I won’t give up, shut up, 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 until I drop, and work until he stops me. And when he comes back for his own, he will have no problem recognizing me, for my banner will be clear, and I will be standing right here.
You see. My name is not important, but this is: I love Jesus, how about you? I love my church and my pastor too. Amen?
