Shine As Lights in the World
Five important commitments we can make that will ensure that we shine the light of Jesus in this dark world.
I. I will mine out what is already mine. (Philippians 2:12; Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Peter 1:3-7)
II. I will depend entirely on God. (Philippians 2:13; Ephesians 3:20)
III. I will not complain or murmur. (Philippians 2:14; Exodus 16:8)
IV. I will be different to make a difference. (Philippians 2:15-16a; Matthew 10:16; Ephesians 5:8)
V. I will esteem others better than myself. (Philippians 2:3-4; 16b-18; Mark 12:31)

2. How are you shining as stars in the world?
