Moody: called to shine

Friday, May 31, 2024
    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 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.
    —Philippians 2:14-16 (NIV)
    God has called us to shine, just as much as Daniel was sent into Babylon to shine. Let no man or woman say that they cannot shine because they have not so much influence as some others may have. What God wants you to do is to use the influence you have. Daniel probably did not have much influence down in Babylon at first, but God soon gave him more because he was faithful and used what he had.
    ... Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899), “To the work! To the work!”: Exhortations to Christians, Chicago: F. H. Revell, 1884, p. 139 (see the book)
    See also Phil. 2:14-16; Pr. 4:18; Isa. 58:8; 60:1-3; Matt. 5:14-16; Mark 4:21; Luke 8:16; 11:33; Rom. 13:12; Eph. 5:8-10; 1 Pet. 2:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me to be a candle for You.
