Because I’m a Christian… I’m proud to be called by that name because it means I have Jesus Christ within and I take pride of my position and unity in Him.
Because I’m a Christian… I’m no longer trying to be strong because it’s the Lord’s strength that will carry me along and when at times I see weaknesses God’s understanding and refining I do seek then I never need to be in dismay because God’s Love rules all I do and say.
Because I’m a Christian… I’m Lifting God on High not bragging of my success or the good things that I do knowing that alone I will fail, but because of God’s Love He will see me through and will bring Glory through the things He has prepared in advance for me to do.
Because I’m a Christian … I’m seeking to be perfect because although my flaws are visible one day they will be no more…Jesus knocked and I opened up the door. Did God believe I was worth it when He died upon the tree yes even knowing I was deep in sin He still came to set me free.
Because I’m a Christian… I still feel the sting of pain but I no longer carry any shame and in my heart there is Joy although things may stay the same but I have the Lord’s Peace because I call upon His name.
Because I’m a Christian… I know I don’t walk alone and the strength to live the Christian Life is given not owned as at the cross I sit at Christ’s feet .
Because I’m a Christian… I seek to be Holy just as the Lord asks us to be by following Jesus who died to set us free. In every thing God’s does and says His Love is the Light that guides me on my way.
Because I’m a Christian… Although in my flesh a sinner I would be but I no longer seek this way because through the Spirit it’s no longer part of me, Christ nailed it to the tree and now I have God’s power to Trust and Obey and I never have to wonder how all this can be because God’s Love in Grace pardoned me.
Because I’m a Christian I know a testing time will be part of my preparation for Eternity but through the trial The Lord will keep me strong because to Him I belong, Satan will never have the upper hand because in Christ Jesus I stand.
Because I’m a Christian… I’m saying I have counted the cost and have chosen to follow Jesus regardless of the sacrifice or loss. I know that the Lord leads the way bringing me to perfection everyday untill in His image I will stay.
