LAST WORDS OF AN AFRICAN MARTYR

24 Oct

UNTO DEATH

Africa

I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed, the die has been cast, I have stepped over the line, the decision has been made–I’m 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, my future is secure–I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals.

My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I won’t give up, shut up, let up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up for the cause of Christ.

I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till everyone knows, work till he stops me and when He comes for His own, He will have no trouble recognizing me because my banner will have been clear.
