children of God


“Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.” Romans 12:4 Have you ever heard the expression “it takes all kinds” ? Maybe that is only a Canadian thing to say, but nonetheless it applies to everyone. Take a look at your own circle of people, every family has that one person that would fit into that category. It is the same with the church family, the body of Christ. How boring would life be…

“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 stars in the universe.” Philippians 2:14-15 (New International Version of the Holy Bible)

This time of year brings out the worst and the best in people. Go shopping on “Black Friday” and you will experience the worst in people arguing over who gets a limited quantity sale item. It’s ridiculous to say the least. There are some people who stir up trouble everywhere they go.

Those of us who have chosen not to complain and argue stand out like stars in the sky. I would much rather shine than be part of this crooked world system. So, if you’ve dreamed of being a star here’s your chance to shine!

Prayer: I thank You, Lord, for allowing me to shine with Your glory. What a difference Your Spirit makes!
