The die has been cast. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present is defined, and my future is secure. I'm finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, plaudits or popularity. I don't have to be right, first, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power. My face is set, my gait is fast, and my goal is Eternal Life. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided, 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, hold up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up and paid up for the cause of Christ. I must go 'til He comes, give 'til I drop, preach 'til all know, and work until He stops me. And when He returns for his own, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner will be clear.
