The imagery of shining like stars in the sky is powerful. If you’ve ever gone camping or into an area where there isn’t much city light it is amazing to experience the brightness of the stars at night. This is what we as Christians are called to be light. Such a stark contrast to the world around us that leaves people in awe and wanting more. What does this look like in our daily walk with Christ? How are we embodying the light of God in our work, our relationships and our environment? It takes effort to work out our salvation into all these areas. It takes discipline, spending time with God, seeking accountability in trusting relationships. IT is something we put on each day, just like how stars come out each day. We don’t get to decide when we are working on our salvation or honoring God but it is something we must embody. That is how we change and how we become new.

In our daily lives, let us strive to embody these principles. When faced with difficulties, choose gratitude over grumbling. When tempted to argue, seek peace and understanding. Remember that God is at work within us, enabling us to live out His purposes. By doing so, we will indeed shine like stars, reflecting the light of Christ to those around us.

May we find strength and joy in this calling, knowing that our efforts in faith are never in vain but contribute to God’s eternal kingdom. Rejoice in the journey, for God is with us, working through us for His glory.

“What we rejoice in is whatever is our central sweetness
and comfort in life. To rejoice in something is to treasure it, to access
its value to you, to reflect on its beauty and importance until your
heart rests in it and tastes the sweetness of it.” – Tim Keller
