the fellowship of the unashamed: are you in?


I am part of the “Fellowship of the Unashamed.” The die has been cast. I have 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,

chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position,

promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I now live by

presence, lean by faith, love by patience,

lift 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, my mission clear. I cannot be bought,

compromised, deterred, 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 am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go until

Heaven returns, give until 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.

I am not ashamed of the gospel . . . Romans 1:16

The author of this amazing prayer isn’t clearly known. Some say it’s anonymous, others claim it is by Dr. Bob Moorehead a retired pastor, others say it was an African pastor who wrote the prayer before he was martyred. Either way, it’s anointed and an incredible encouragemet to Christians everywhere. Be blessed. Be encouraged in all you do today.

Add your own personal line to this amazing mantra. What stake have you put in the ground? Be bold, be brave.

I must “go” until Heaven returns, give until I drop, and preach until all know. #LiveSticky

And when Christ comes for me, He will recognize His child. My colors will be clear. #LiveSticky

    I won’t be chased off, shut down, hushed up or kicked out . . . of the online conversation. I will go viral with truth, go big with blessing, and go home knowing I did all I could with what I had for the One who died for me.

    I will forget failures. I will thrive with perserverance and courage. I will give God full reign to use me, mold me, and shape me. I am HIS.

    Woo-Hoo! We’re bringing this game HOME — testifying with the angels. God is good and all-powerful

    I’m not gonna shrink back, love less, or lose hope in The Land of Shiny Things. Love is my tatoo I wear in honor of my King—you will see it permanently written ALL OVER my life. I will sing louder, pray harder, shine brighter, and run farther in the race set before me.
