My commitment as a disciple of Jesus Christ

I'm 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 Him.
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'm finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colourless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity position, plaudits of popularity.
I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognised, praised, regarded or rewarded.
I live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer and labour by power.

My face is set, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, 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 the adversary, 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, let up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Jesus Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus!

I will go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and will till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me - My banner will be clear.
