When I Say, "I Am a Christian" (Original)

Categories: Religion

Original Version
by Carol Wimmer

When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not shouting, "I've been saved!"
I'm whispering, "I get lost! That's why I chose this way."

When I say, "I am a Christian," I don't speak with human pride
I'm confessing that I stumble — needing God 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 that I've failed and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say, "I am a Christian," I don't think I know it all
I submit to my confusion asking humbly to be taught.

When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far 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 heartache which is why I seek 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.

Jesus said, "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again." (John 3:3) I was r ...more
