Apostolic Attitude

Apostolic Attitude
Author Unknown

I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed, I have Holy Ghost Power. The dye has been cast, I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of HIS. 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 am finished with low-living, sight-walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need prosperity, promotion, position, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by present tense, by faith, walk by patience, live 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 away, turned back, deluded, deceived, or delayed. I will no flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of my enemy, negotiate at the table of the adversary, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give-up, let-up, or shut-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 Christ, I must go ’til He comes, give ’til I drop, preach ’til all know and work ’til He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will not have any problems recognizing me because I will not be discouraged and I refuse to quit.
