I Am A Christian!

 

What does that mean?

It means I am saved from condemnation

by God, my Creator

through the life, death and resurrection

of His Son, Jesus Christ

as testified and constantly upheld

by His Holy Spirit

 

What else does that mean?

It means that I am a witness

who, by his word and by his work

reveals God's gospel of salvation

to any who will hear and see,

as their co-conspirator in our fall

I will to the best of my ability,

stand on my faith in God,

reveal the gospel that saved me,

which can also save them,

and allow the world to respond

and determine its own path

as it sees fit to do

I will be faithful to God

That, alone of all work, is mine

 

What does that not mean?

It does not mean that I

condemn the world for its failure

That is for God alone

It does not mean that I

judge the world for its failure

That is for Jesus Christ alone

It does not mean that I

convict the world of its failure

That is for the Holy Spirit alone
