Developing generative spiritual leaders who influence their communities for Christ.

Shine Like Stars

At the conclusion of his sermon on Philippians 2 and serving like Jesus, Rev. Tom Davis at Campton UMC asked, "How does my life or your life shine like stars so that others know what the love of Christ is all about?" What a convicting and compelling question. Yes, the night is dark and the clouds are thick but we were made to shine. Made to shine not through power, might, or force but through the sacrificial love of Jesus "who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death even death on a cross." That my friends is the Gospel. That my friends is our call and commission. That my friends is how we shine like stars.
