The Fellowship of the Unashamed
By Dr. Bob Moorehead
In 1980 a young man from Rwanda was forced by his tribe to either renounce Christ or face certain death. He refused to renounce Christ, and was killed on the spot. The night before he had written the following commitment which was found in his room:
“I’m part 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 done with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colourless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving & dwarfed goals.
My face 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 Jesus Christ.
I must go till he comes, give till I drop, preach till everyone knows, work till he stops me & when he comes for his own, he will have no problem recognizing me because my banner will be clear.The Fellowship of the Unashamed
