False Stars, False Light
Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness.
Luke 11:35 (NKJV)
True light cannot be switched off. It's not dependent on man or electricity. It's dependent on God.

Jesus Christ is true Light. Because God's performing stars glow with His Light, they shine as brightly off stage as on it. Because their Light is from the constant Source.

Not so with false stars. The king of false stars is Satan. As Jesus says, 'I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven' (Luke 10:18). Can the most beautiful and powerful of God's former angels confuse us today? Yes. 'And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light' (2 Corinthians 11:14).

Confusing us is his mission.

Clearing up the matter is ours.

Actors, models and talent for Christ are called to enter show business stage right. The movement has begun. God's stars will outshine the confusion. Girls and boys who do not receive guidance at home, will be guided by God's stars - like beacons pointing to a greater Home.

Therefore, know your mission; know your enemy; know your King. Resist worldly temptations to embellish or replace His Light with false light.

You are called to stand up in the Light of Jesus. You are called to stand up in brilliant contrast to false stars--without judgment or condemnation. You are called to be examples, both on stage and off: examples that lost and prodigal children can follow.

You are called to be the performing faces, voices, hands and feet of Christ.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
