Why I Follow Jesus Christ (and His Teachings)? “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’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 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.”
