Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as [stars] in the world, holding fast to the word of life. PHILIPPIANS 2:14-16

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). He also said to His disciples, “You are the light of the world” (Matt. 5:14). And here in Philippians 2, we are told that Christian believers who hold fast to the word of life shine like lights (or stars) in the world.

How will the light of Christ be seen in the world today? It will be seen through believers who hold fast to the truth. The New Testament is full of this theme:

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matt. 5:16)

For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light. (Eph. 5:8)

This is our calling. We must be done with the deeds of darkness because we belong to the light. God’s plan is that people will see the light of Christ through His people. And God has placed His people in every dark corner of the world to shine as stars.

Where is your dark corner? Are you shining?
