A thought from Mark

THE FELLOWSHIP COMMITTED TO DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES

(Sherri Silk shared this at a conference.)

Upon the death of a missionary who had spend 20 years in Africa digging out a work for God, tacked on the wall of his mud hut was this note:

I'm a part of the fellowship committed to doing whatever it takes.

I have Holy Spirit power. The die has already been cast. I've stepped over the line.

I'm out of the comfort zone. The decision has been made. I'm a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won't look back, let up, slow down, or back away. My past is Redeemed, my present makes sense and my future is Secure.

I'm finished and done with low living, and sight walking, small planing, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame visions, mundane talking, chinchy giving and dwarf goals. I'm a part of the fellowship committed to doing whatever it takes.

I no longer need pre-eminence.

I no longer need position.

I no longer need promotions.

I no longer need popularity.

I don't have to be Right!

I don't have to be First!

I don't have to be Tops!

I don't have to be Recognized, Praised, Regarded, or Rewarded.

I'm a part of the fellowship committed to doing whatever it takes.

I now live by presence. I lead by faith. I love by patience. I lift by prayer. I labor by power. I'm a part of the fellowship committed to doing whatever it takes. My face is set. My gait is fast. My goal is heaven. My road is narrow. My way is rough. My companions are few, but my guide is reliable. My mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, or lured away.

I cannot be turned back or diluted, I will not be delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, or hesitate in the face of the adversary, or negotiate at the table of my enemies. I will not ponder at the pool of popularity or meander in the maze called mediocrity. I won't give up, shut up, let up, or burn up until I've preached up, prayed up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of the Jesus Christ. I'm a part of the fellowship committed to doing whatever it takes.

I'm a disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go until He comes. I must give until I drop. I must preach until all know. I must work until God stops and when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me, because I've dedicated my life to being a part of the fellowship committed to doing whatever it takes.

Blessings,

Mark
