I am not a 'christian'....

 I am a CHRISTIAN!!!!

Loved of God, in Christ, in eternity past, predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son in righteounsess, called of God according to His eternal purpose, delcared just in His sight forever, the seed of Abraham by faith, a royal priest of God, a saint, preserved of God....and the list goes on (John 6:39; Romans 8:28-30; Romans 4:12; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 1 Peter 2:9)! 

I am not merely a 'christian', a religious man, a follower of a particular system of belief! That type of mediocrity belongs to the world with its passing fashions and fads. I can stand up in the face of every terror and every evil and every liar and confidently declare the glory of the ONE TRUE God and of His Son, my Savior. I can laugh in the face of everyone who opposes the Lord Jesus Christ and who deny His precious blood, not because I am given to pride but because I am confident that He who loves me is the great Creator, powerful Sustianer, sovereign Ruler, merciful Savior and just Judge over all, and that He is sovereign!

I can withstand every foe because I know that my Redeemer lives and will, once again, stand on this earth for final and eternal judgment of His enemies (Job 19:25; Revelation 20:12). I can boldly declare the truth of my God to all men because God has shown me that His truth is for all men. He has taught me that to pity the lost is pleasing to Him and, even if they hate me, and shun me, and kill me for it, He accepts me and will accept me into His kingdom. I can hate the world as men have perverted it and the flesh that seeks to dominate me with lust and refuse both absolutely, knowing that I have a better world and a renewed life to look forward to. 

In my moments of fear and doubt and shrinking I can, because of God's faithful promises, cry out 'away with all unbelief!' I can stand 'toe to toe' with the 'goliaths' of opposition to God that threaten the faith I love and I can refuse to allow those life-sapping demons of fear and doubt that seek to prevent me from my doing my joyful duty to my LORD!

I have, far too often, been a coward! I admit it! I confess it! I repent! When those who are defenders of sin and unbelief come into my sphere of influence I will do my best to love them and speak the turth of God in love but I will not compromise with them! After all, I, as a CHRISTIAN, am the one who is right and they, who oppose the Lord, are the ones who are wrong!
