Bible Studies for Life Lesson for November 22: Act Faithfully
November 5 2015 by Bartley Wooten, pastor, Beulaville Baptist Church

Focal passages: Daniel 6:6-10, 13-16, 19-22
Bob Moorehead published a prayer in his book Words Aptly Spoken that was contained by a believer in Africa who was martyred for his faith. As we consider Daniel’s faithfulness in this week’s lesson I believe this prayer will encourage us to act like Daniel and remain faithful no matter the cost. The prayer is best known as “The Fellowship of the Unashamed.” 

I’m part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of His and I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.
My past is redeemed. My present makes sense. My future is secure.
I’m done and finished with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living and dwarfed goals. I no longer need preeminence, lavish wealth, position, promotions, plaudits or popularity. I don’t have to be right, or first, or tops, or recognized, or praised or rewarded.
I live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer and labor by Holy Spirit power. My face is set. My gait is fast.
My goal is Heaven. My road may be narrow, my way rough, my companions few, but my Guide is reliable and my mission is clear.
I will not be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice or hesitate in the presence of the adversary. I will not negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won’t give up, shut up or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up and preached up for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus. I must give until I drop, preach until all know and work until He comes. And when He does come for His own, He’ll have no problems recognizing me.

My colors will be clear.
