The Fellowship of the Unashamed

A young pastor from Zimbabwe:
I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have the Holy Spirit's power. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made; I'm a disciple of His! I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. . . . I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus.
--quoted in R. Kent Hughes, 1001 Great Stories and "Quotes" (Tyndale House 1998), 61-62
