I am part of the “Fellowship of the Unashamed.”
I have Holy Spirit power. The die has been cast. I’ve stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure.
I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees,colorless dreams, tame visions, mundane talking , chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals!
I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity.
I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by presence, learn by faith, love by patience, live by prayer, and labor by power.
My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, and my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted, 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, back up, let up, slow up or shut up until I’ve preached up, prayed up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus.
I must go until He returns, give till I drop, preach until all know, and work until He comes. And when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me… my colors will be clear.
For “I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. (Romans 1:16)
Author: These words (with multiple variations) have been quoted and adapted many times by various preachers, teachers, authors and websites. They serve as the motto or mission statement for several ministries. The words have been attributed to many people in many countries, but the original author seems to remain unknown. It is believed by many sources that these words are the last words of a young pastor in Zimbabwe who was martyred for his faith in Jesus Christ and that these words were found in his study.
