  SHINE! Your Greatest Benefit to Others 

Philippians 2:15, That you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world. 

Our prosperity of spirit, soul, and body is linked directly to status as "Children of God." Children carry the DNA of their parents. As Christ followers, we carry the spiritual DNA of the Lord.

Jesus is the difference we can bring to our world. His Life also empowers and protects our lives. He is the SOURCE of our healing and strength as helpful things in this world become our resource. Never confuse sources and resources. 

As we continue to grow and draw closer to the Lord, we glow like lights. This is not something we try to do. It is an outcome of living close to God and being "blameless and harmless."

Here is a profound statement of ultimate purpose, the greatest benefit we offer to people within our circles of influence and interaction:

"Among whom you shine as lights in the world." (Philippians 2:15)
