"How long a Christian?", you ask,
Only this one day.
Each morning I start out anew,
And try to walk His way.
Not by weeks or months or years
Can the depth of my faith be measured.
Each day I start the walk again
And run the race with pleasure.
It's not the span of time gone by
That gauges my walk with the Lord,
But how close I walked on this one day
In obedience to His Holy Word.

And this is love: that we walk in obedience
to his commands. (2 John 1:6)
