Philippians 2:14-16 ” 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 the 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.”
The Scene: Stars in the heavens, shining above the earth–a representation of the children of God, emulating Jesus as the Light of the world.
We have been called out of darkness–we are to exalt Jesus, who in fact is God–He came to earth as a baby (human). He became a man, obeyed God and became a servant, allowing Himself to die on the cross for us who receive His atoning sacrifice & resurrection on the third day as the only propitiation for our sins. (See 1 John 2:2 KJV)
Philippians 2:6-8 “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death– even death on a cross!”
Therefore we are to exalt Him above every name–King Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
As children of God we are to be like the stars in the heavens, shining out into a darkened world, rejoicing and being glad at who we are in Him, King Jesus! Amen!
