When I say 'I am a Christian'

When I say 'I am a Christian'



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 feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
[]
When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!
