THE GOSPEL...ACCORDING TO ME

THE GOSPEL...ACCORDING TO ME

	When I say, "I am a Christian,"
	I'm not shouting, "I am saved."
	I'm whispering, "I was lost";
	That is why I chose this way.

	When I say, "I am a Christian,"
	I don't speak of this with pride.
	I'm confessing that I stumble,
	And need someone 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 pray for strength to carry on.

	When I say, "I am a Christian,"
	I'm not bragging of success.
	I'm admitting I have failed,
	And cannot ever pay the debt.

	When I say, "I am a Christian,"
	I'm not claiming to be perfect.
	My flaws are too visible,
	But God believes I'm worth it.

	When I say, "I am a Christian,"
	I still feel the sting of pain.
	I have my share of heartaches,
	Which is why I speak His name.

	When I say, "I am a Christian,"
	I do not wish to judge.
	I have no authority;
	I only know I'm loved.
