"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 shin like stars in the universe" (Philippians 2:15).
Of all the places on earth, of all the people on earth, the church and Christ-followers are to shine like stars in a twisted and depraved world.
Christ-followers and the church is to be seen by the dark world of sin and depravity as those in whom the light of the risen Christ streams forth with power. We are to be a sign of God's new life in a world that only knows the way to death.
The church and Christ-followers are to be the visible demonstration of what God intends for the world that only knows death, darkness, and depravity.
