Christian!

Posted: September 19, 2014 in Inspiration
When I say that ‘I am a Christian’, I am not shouting that ‘I am clean living.  I’m whispering ‘I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.
When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I don’t speak of this with pride.  I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
 
When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I’m not trying to be strong. I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.
 
When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I’m not bragging of success. I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
 
When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I’m not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.
 
When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say ‘I am a Christian’, I’m not holier than thou, I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace, somehow!
 
Amazing and humbling.
