I Am A Christian

0 comments Posted on January 17, 2013

When I say that “I am a Christian,” I am not shouting that “I have it all together.”  I am 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 fall and I am in desperate need for Christ to be my guide.  When I say, “I am Christian,” I am not trying to show a false sense of strength.  I am professing that in my own strength, I am weak and need His strength to carry on.  When I say, “I am a Christian,” I am not bragging about my successes.  I am admitting that I have failed and need God to clean my mess.  When I say, “I am a Christian,” I am not claiming to be perfect.  My flaws are far too visible but even with my flaws, God looks at me with love.  When I say, “I am a Christian,” I still feel the sting of pain as I have my share of heartaches, so I constantly call upon His name.  When I say, “I am a Christian,” I am not “holier than thou.”  I am just a sinner who has experienced the amazing Grace of God.
