I have a late night confession for you. I have seen people wearing shirts with FBI emblazoned on the back and wondered what it meant. I knew it was not the Federal Bureau of Investigations, but couldn’t quite figure it out until this weekend. I was shopping at our local christian book store and spotted a card with FBI on the front. It stands for Firm Believer In Christ. I’ll share with you what the card says, because I love it so much. This is on the off chance that one of you out there is as slow as I am in picking up on some of these things!
The decision has been made, the die has been cast, and I have stepped over the line. As a disciple of Christ, I will no longer 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’m finished with low living, sight walking, worldly talking, cheap giving, and tamed visions. I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, power or popularity. I don’t have to be right, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, walk in VICTORY, and labor in love. The road before me is narrow and rough, but His commission is undeniable, thus my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have prayed up, praised up, paid up, and spoke up for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am a Christian, an Unashamed Firm Believer In Christ!
Wow! Let’s all go out with that attitude tomorrow!
