Shining as Lights in the World

shining lights

“So then, dear friends, as you always obeyed me when I was with you, it is

even more important that you obey me now while I am away from you.


Keep on working with fear and trembling to complete your salvation,

because God is always at work in you to make you willing and able

to obey his own purpose.


Do everything without complaining or arguing so that you may be innocent

and pure as God’s perfect children, who live in

a world of corrupt and sinful people.


You must shine among them like stars lighting up the sky, as you offer them

the message of life.  If you do so, I shall have a reason to be proud of you on the

Day of Christ, because it will show that all my effort and work

have not been wasted.


Perhaps my life’s blood is to be poured out like an offering on the sacrifice that

your faiths offers to God.  If that is so, I am glad and share my joy with you

all.  In the same way, you  too must be glad and share your joy with me.”


Phillippians  2:12-18
