Feb 4 Devotion: How to Shine Brightly!

Phil. 2:15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

This time of year is festive. Many decorate their homes for Christmas and thousands of strands of lights are displayed in each neighbourhood. When I see them I’m reminded that Jesus, who is the Light, came to this earth some two thousand years ago to illuminate our hearts with the gospel. He told His disciples in Matt. 5 that they were the light of the earth, and in our text verse we are exhorted to shine in this depraved, perverse world. “How can I make a difference?” you may ask, the answer is simply; shine brightly!

How to Shine Brightly!

-v. 15

*by …

1. having a Passion for Jesus!

2. having a Positive attitude!

3. having a Prayer life that’s fervent!

4. being Persistent through hardships!

5. Purposely walking daily with Jesus!

6. being Prepared mentally for Satan’s attacks!

7. having Progressive Spiritual growth! (never become satisfied) This world not only needs but deserves to see true Christians who live their faith, have biblical convictions, and shine brightly for Jesus Christ! We’ll shine the brightest when we’ve been the closest to Jesus. Dear friend, how’s your glow? I pray it’s brighter than any man made Christmas display.
