so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.
If we want to be known as children of God we must live a life worthy of having his name attached to it. We must be up to par and live according to His standards and His standards alone. In a world full of darkness perverseness and vileness we must stand out shining like the Son. Let us not give anyone any reason to criticize us and by doing so criticize God. We have a great name to uphold. A name that is greater than any other name. That name that brings forth for salvation. This is the noon we are carrying.
In light of this, we must remain firm and I have faith and live for Christ. We must do the exact opposite of what the world does. In their lies, we must uphold integrity. In their bearing of false witness, we must speak the truth. In their corruptness, we must remain right. There must be a light inside of us that shines bright and illuminate our surrounding world.
Being the light of God isn’t just by word of mouth but rather by our actions, therefore we must act in the goodness of Christ.
