We are to be holding fast and holding forth. The former concept suggests a steadfastness in which our lights blaze continually for God. The latter concept implies projecting our lights into the darkness of this world. Paul depicts believers as lights. Yes, we may be in agony or at times caught up in our own situations; some of us have My even a tendency to put blinders on instead of seeing how God can use us in the midst of trails, tribulations heartache, and suffering. In fact, we are using Paul’s letter to the Philippians’ church in chapter 2 to teach us this. Paul in this chapter encourages the Philippians, “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. It has to be pointed, out since we are talking about works and involving yourself past your pain and Paul’s reference to work out your own salvation; this is him referring to the Philippians to develop and work out their salvation but not to work for their salvation. We also have to understand according to the scripture God works in according to his will and to do for His good pleasure. I know some people don’t want to hear what they are going through is according to a divine plan of God. But, if you understand this then you know God is going to see you through. The scripture specifically states in verse14, “Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation”. What is being asked is not easy but in the discussion we will talk about it in length. We will also discuss how, “through Christ all things are possible”. It is my prayer for you the listening audience or someone going through is given another tool to aid them with their suffering, ultimately, becoming a steadfast blaze of light for God. More importantly, I know whatever your pain may be; God is able to heal; if you will allow him into your hearts.
