Light that does not shine

​Do everything without murmuring or questioning [the providence of God], so that you may prove yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish in the midst of a [morally] crooked and [spiritually] perverted generation, among whom you are seen as bright lights [beacons shining out clearly] in the world [of darkness],

PHILIPPIANS 2:14‭-‬15 AMP

As born again in Christ believers, we are called to be the light of the world. We are called to be a example of Christ to others. Yes, sometimes we are in situations that require a huge amount of faith and decency on the Word of God. And there can start self pity, grumbling and complaining. But expressing out loud the others those negative emotions counteracts immensely with our calling! How can others see the light, the power, the love of Jesus Christ when, by our own grumbling and complaining, we portrait a God who does not listen, keep His promises, Who does not love us? Other people mostly give their lives to Jesus by conviction and wanting what we have.If they are showned a bad portrait of God, they will not want a relationship with Jesus. They will think that this relationship comes with hard trials and a severe God that does not answer prayers! To avoid complaining and grumbling, there is a solution: we cannot wait for hard situations in our lives to have a huge amount of faith and dependency on the Word. We have to live in full dependency on God, walk by faith, and renew our minds with the Word, every day. We cannot wait for bad situations to live that way, if not we will never experience the blessing, loving, guiding and fantastic relationship with Christ Jesus. Faith requires of us to live expectantly, with joy and peace of mind. So set your focus on God and cease complaining and grumbling at once! ❤
