Public Relations Specialists

today's reading.
Philippians 2:12-18    Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling...

think about it.
What makes our obedience possible (2:12-13)? How do we "shine as lights" (2:14-16)? How well do you think you're "shining"?

the blog.
Paul talks about us "shining as lights in the world" in Philippians 2:12-18. So I started thinking about what being a shining light means and this hit me--being a shining light ultimately means we are representatives, public relations specialists of Christ (I like that title, by the way). And, that being the case, our "shining" needs to be a way of life (a standard or default) for us as Christ-followers. 

So do you see yourself as a public relations specialist for Christ? What are some things you do or have done to fulfill this role? Tami W.
