The Christian Covenant

I'm a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The

decision has been made. I'm a disciple of His and 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 done and finished with low

living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane

talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.


I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don't have

to be right, or first, or tops, or recognized, or praised, or rewarded. I live by faith, lean on His

presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by Holy Spirit power.


My face is set. My gait is fast. My goal is heaven. My road may be narrow, my way rough, my

companions few, but my guide is reliable and my mission is clear.


I will not be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.


I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice or hesitate in the presence of the adversary. I will not 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, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and preached

up for the cause of Christ.


I am a disciple of Jesus. I must give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He comes. And

when He does come for His own, He'll have no problems recognizing me.


My colors will be clear!
