Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may be innocent and pure as God’s perfect children, who live in a world of corrupt and sinful people. You must shine among them like stars lighting up the sky, as you offer them the message of life. If you do so, I shall have reason to be proud of you on the Day of Christ, because it will show that all my effort and work have not been wasted. Philippians 2:14-16 GNB

As a child of God, you should be passionate about avoiding evil. For your God is holy and clothed with brilliant, penetrating light. His glorious presence dispels darkness and reveals every stain or hidden thing. If you are to honor Him, you must actively pursue holiness in your conduct, speech and deeds.

Unholy lifestyle keeps you at distance with Him and rob you the joy of His presence. A pure and blameless life makes Him to stand with you always, and when God is with you, you are more than a majority and there is no earthly or satanic force no matter how strong that can overcome you. May the Lord Jesus Himself help you to be determined always to avoid sin but pursue holiness and righteousness. Good morning and do have a pleasant day.

Your brother,
