I Am A Christian

When I say, “I am a Christian”,
I am not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
I’m whispering, “I was lost but now I am 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 need Christ to be my guide.

When I say, “I am a Christian”,
I’m not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say, “I am a Christian”,
I’m not bragging of success.
I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean up my mess.

When I say, “I am a Christian”,
I’m not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say, “I am a Christian”,
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say, “I am a Christian”,
I’m not holier than thou.
I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace, somehow!
