Following on from yesterday’s gratitude of candles, today is a verse from the Bible that stands out to me as so important for the work that I do –
Do everything without grumbling or
arguing, so that you may become blameless and
pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then
you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.
That image of shining like stars and being a beacon to the world of what you believe in, of Gods word, really holds strong in my mind.
As a Christian we have the ability the be someone different, someone who doesn't conform to ways of the world but instead shows the world a different way of doing things, of shining out as we do it.
Today on facebook there was an article circling around about Martha Collison, about, how at just 17 her priority is her faith, this is something that you can see radiates off of her when she’s on TV (she’s a contestant in the Great British Bake Off!) and the interview that Christian Today do with her makes for interesting reading.
I wonder do you shine your
faith out? Do you hold onto Gods word without moaning or grumbling and seek to
be blameless and pure? Maybe have a think over the weekend how you can keep
being that star shining out like God wants you to?
