Beloved, in the midst of a darkened society and culture, we must journey as blameless children of light. As we humble ourselves God will work in us and shine through us. Amen!
Philippians 2:12-18 (TPT)
Believers Shine Like Lights in the World
“12 My beloved ones, just like you’ve always listened to everything I’ve taught you in the past, I’m asking you now to keep following my instructions as though I were right there with you. Now you must continue to make this new life fully manifested as you live[a] in the holy awe of God—which brings you trembling into his presence. 13 God will continually revitalize you, implanting within you the passion to do what pleases him.[b]
14 Live a cheerful life, without complaining or division among yourselves. 15 For then you will be seen as innocent,[c] faultless, and pure children of God, even though you live in the midst of a brutal and perverse culture.[d] For you will appear among them as shining lights[e] in the universe, 16 holding out[f] the words of eternal life.[g]
I haven’t labored among you for nothing, for your lives are the fruit of my ministry and will be my glorious boast at the unveiling[h] of Christ!
17 But I will rejoice even if my life is poured out like a liquid offering to God over your sacrificial and surrendered lives of faith.[i]18 And so no matter what happens to me, you should rejoice in ecstatic celebration with me!Read full chapter”
1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (TPT)~
“57 But we thank God for giving us the victory as conquerors through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. 58 So now, beloved ones, stand firm, stable, and enduring. Live your lives with an unshakable confidence. We know that we prosper and excel in every season by serving the Lord, because we are assured that our union with the Lord makes our labor productive with fruit that endures. “
Be Victorious as His shining Children!
