I am Christian

leave a comment »

When I say that “I am a Christian”, I am not shouting that I am clean living.
I’m 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 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 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 fell the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartache, so I call upon His name.

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