THE CONFESSION OF A YOUNG CHRISTIAN MARTYR FROM AFRICA
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 with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, worldly talking, cheap giving and 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 and when He comes for His own, He will have no trouble recognizing me because my banner will have been clear!!”
No wonder he became a Martyr!!
Romans 8:28 / 1st Peter 5:7
“MUST JESUS BEAR THE CROSS ALONE, AND ALL THE WORLD GO FREE?
*[Luke 9:23-26] “And He said unto them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his Cross daily, and follow Me…”
*[2 Corinthians 5:14-15]
