“When I say I am a Christian..”

What does it mean to be a Christian? I’ve read two inspiring answers to that question recently.  I shared one yesterday (Click HERE to read it)

And heeeeeeerrrrrreeeee’s  #2

I found it when I was looking for a photo to illustrate addiction on THIS post.  Here’s the photo I found:

I found the pic on Flickr, and, as a bonus, this poem, too, that the photographer had written about himself:

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 all 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 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.” ~~ Bill Wasser, OnlybyGrace

Isn’t that cool?  Do you know that You are loved by Someone who thinks you’re worth it?  Click on the pic below to be introduced:
