I AM A DISCIPLE OF JESUS

I AM A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST.

I WON'T LOOK BACK, SLOW DOWN, BACK AWAY, OR BE STILL.

MY PAST IS REDEEMED; MY PRESENT MAKES SENSE; MY FUTURE IS SECURE.

I'M FINISHED WITH LOW LIVING, SMALL PLANNING, COLORLESS DREAMS, TAME VISIONS, MUNDANE TALKING, AND CHINCHY GIVING.

I NO LONGER NEED PROSPERITY, POSITIONS, PROMOTIONS, PLAUDITS, OR POPULARITY.

I DON'T HAVE TO BE RIGHT, FIRST, TOPS, RECOGNIZED, REGARDED, REWARDED, OR PRAISED.

I NOW LIVE BY PRESENCE, LEAD BY FAITH, 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 IS ROUGH; MY COMPANIONS FEW; MY GUIDE RELIABLE; MY MISSION CLEAR.

I CANNOT BE BOUGHT, COMPROMISED, DETOURED, LURED, DELUDED, OR DELAYED.

I WILL NOT FLINCH IN THE FACE OF SACRIFICE, HESITATE IN THE FACE OF THE ADVERSARY, NEGOTIATE AT THE TABLE OF THE ENEMY, PONDER AT THE POOL OF POPULARITY, OR MEANDER IN THE MAZE OF MEDIOCRITY.

I WILL GO UNTIL HE COMES, GIVE UNTIL I'M EMPTY; SPEAK UNTIL ALL KNOW, AND WORK UNTIL HE STOPS ME.

I WON'T GIVE UP, SHUT UP, OR LET UP UNTIL I'VE STAYED UP, STOOD UP, PRAYED UP, AND PAID UP FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST.

I AM A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST.
