“Shine As Light”

Key Verse

“That 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” (Philippians 2:15).

Text — Philippians 2:12-16


Writing on the life of believers in Christ, J. C. Ryle asserted, “Saving faith and real converting grace will always produce conformity to the image of Jesus.” The lives of the believers in the early Church showed “… they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13).They were first called Christians in Antioch not merely by their profession of Christ but by their Christ-like pattern of life (Acts 11:26). As true sons and daughters of God, they shone as light in the world. The sinful society demands that saints should shine brightly. We should not complain that the world is evil. We know that the darker the environment, the brighter a little ray of light can be. As the light of the world, we must let people see our good works. So how do we shine? By our good character, wholesome words, Christian love and care, preaching, moral uprightness, and avoiding sin.

Arise and shine as light in every area of your life, including your spiritual, academics, social and professional life, such that anyone who comes in contact with you, will be attracted to Christ.


Arise and Shine as light.


Shine by your character and conduct.

Prayer for today

Holy Father, let my life attract men to you, in Jesus’ name.
