Fellowship of the Unashamed
--by Bob Moorehead
I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have the Holy Spirit power. The die has
been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made--I am a disciple of His.
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, tame visions, worldly-talking, cheap giving, and
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean in His presence, walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer and I labor with power.
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 cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, hired away, turned back, diluted, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the enemy, pander at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won't give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, give up till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes my banner will be clear!

(Please note that this site is not written by Dr Moorehead, but I thought that this piece was so powerful, I wanted to include it on middletree.net. Click the book title above to be taken to the book's link on Amazon.com. Also please note that attributions to an African martyr for this piece are incorrect. According to Dr. Moorehead's son, a man in Africa who was killed for his faith had a copy of The Fellowship of the Unshamed on him when he was killed.)
