Shine Like Stars

August 19, 2015

"Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you SHINE LIKE STARS in the universe as you hold out the word of life -- in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing." Philippians 2:14-16

We do live in a crazy world these days! Controversial issues, wars, disease, natural disasters, and the like surround us. But we are called to be different. We are called to SHINE.  How do we fulfill this command from Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit, over 2,000 years ago?  We do all things "without complaning or arguing." How easy is that?

  • When we are asked to complete a task that is difficult or menial?
  • When our plans don't go our way and we have to adjust our schedule?
  • When we don't agree with our friend or family member or teacher or supervisor and we want to argue to prove our point or simply voice our displeasure?
  • When we are stuck in traffic or stuck in line waiting or just stuck in the proverbial "rut" in life?

It's not easy, but it's what we are called to do. As Christian women and men, boys and girls, and youth, we are called to be a LIGHT in this dark world. And the way we accomplish that is by remaining "blameless and pure."  We take the mind and heart of Christ with us wherever we go. So then, whatever happens, we can remember to SHINE.

  • Smile
  • Help
  • Inspire
  • Nurture
  • Encourage

Smile - Others can see the love of Jesus on our faces when we SMILE!  We have the King of Kings living in our hearts, so let His radiance shine through us!

Help - Do an act of kindness each day to HELP someone. It may be as simple as holding the door for the person walking through the door after us or paying for the meal of the person behind us in line at the drive through. These acts of kindness are contagious!

Inspire - Share an inspirational thought or verse or video to INSPIRE others to action. Fulfill the definition: "to fill someone with the urge or ability to do something, especially to do something creative."

Nurture - Care for others in need and NURTURE them so they may grow as Jesus did - in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.

Encourage - Speak words of blessing and life to others. In doing so, we will build up the body of Christ. 

So, this year at Wynnbrook, we will be SHINING LIKE STARS. What about you?
