My Verse

Isaiah 43:1

"But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Isreal, "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!"

Shine like stars

Philippians 2:15b-16a
Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.

Genesis 1:15
And let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth." And it was so.

The purpose of us shining like stars is not for our glory, but to be a light on earth, but not shining our light, but the true light that comes from the word of life.

Just before Paul says to shine like stars, he also says, "Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation". We like stars have to stand out from darkness around us, instead of blending in.
