Fellowship of The Unashamed

I thought it wise to publish this article titled “Fellowship of the unashamed” on our blog. Though we have it as a post on our default home page, yet we must be well acquainted to it. Many of us might have come across it severally therefore, this will serve as a reminder to help strengthen our consecration. on the other hand, many might have not come across it for once. Therefore, this article serves as a clarion call to us all. We must wake up from our wishy washy Christianity and stand firm and tall for our Lord Jesus Christ. How i hope that this will be the commitment of every true, heaven minded and God focused christian. How i pray that God will help us grow beyond Christianity without proofs, Christianity at our comfort zone and Christianity without cross. Thus is the story behind the article.

fellowship of the unashamed

In 1980 a young man from Rwanda named Dr. Bob Moorehead was forced by his tribe to either renounce Christ or face certain death. He refused to renounce Christ, and he was killed on the spot. The night before the incident, he had written the following commitment which was found in his room:

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 He 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
