ARCHIPPUS AFFIRMATION

I affirm and acknowledge myself as an Archippus.

I may be almost anonymous but I am fully known by name and have found grace in God’s sight. I am fearfully and wonderfully made, created in His image, saved and called according to His purpose and grace.

I am aware of the signs and urgency of the times. The days are evil and the time is short. I will not live as one who is apathetic but will walk wisely and circumspectly, filled with the Spirit, knowing His Word, understanding the will of the Lord, making the most of every opportunity and participating in the advancement of His kingdom.

I will always determine to know my God-given kingdom assignment in every season that I may be faithful to fulfil it in my area of influence. I will discern between Christian activity and kingdom assignment, appreciating that busyness does not necessarily mean fruitfulness. I will not be distracted by anything that will cause me to miss my assignment, that which has already been prepared for me beforehand.

I am anything but aimless. I will be clear and focused on what the Lord has assigned to me. Each day is filled with purpose and adventure, journeying with and relying wholly on Jesus for apart from Him, I will not be fruitful. Thus I shall run the race, with certainty and resolve, with perseverance and endurance, looking to the prize I shall receive when I one day stand before my Lord and Judge, Jesus Christ.

This is what it means to be an Archippus and I gladly join the ranks of others who, like me, desire to please my Master and to hear the words, “Well done! Good and faithful servant!” Our readiness is determined by our faithfulness. We will gather to encourage, exhort and edify one another. We will train and run together, spurring each other on, laying aside every weight and sin, eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

I am Archippus. Awakened. Aligned. Assigned.
