I am one whose aim is to fulfill the law of Christ. I am a disciple of Christ. l am a servant, a willing slave of Christ. I am a citizen in the kingdom of Christ. I am a soldier in the army of Christ. I am a member of the church of Christ. There are things I cannot do and places I cannot go. I am forgiven of the past, blessed in the present and full of hope for the future. I am saved.

I do not have to have my own way. I do not have to be first nor the one to get credit for what is done. I refuse to be offended and quit, discouraged and stop, hurt and hindered. I do not need to be flattered, commended or honored to be faithful. I do not have to be picked up, pumped up nor pampered to attend to worship. Funerals, weddings, family reunions and ball games will not keep me from the Lord's table. I love His word and I love His church.

I am a soldier - I will fight. I am a servant - I will serve. I am a brother - I will love. I am a son - I will obey. I am a member - I will work. I am a citizen - I will be responsible. l am a discip|e - I will follow. Indeed, I am one of you, fulfilling the law of Christ. -Selected


Every soul on earth is here
To serve our God above.
Solomon has made this clear(1),
And John(2), the man of love.

But servants true we cannot be
If Him we do not know(3),
So read His word(4), and then you’ll see
How to him you may go(5).
