Hot Topics... Fame
No one lights a lamp and then covers it with a bowl or hides it under a bed. A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light can be seen by all who enter the house.
Luke 8:16 (NLT)
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Matthew 5:14 (NASB)
Nations will be brought to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising.
Isaiah 60:3 (NASB)
Some Christians shun the idea of fame, as if it's too worldly or immoral. I get it, because fame can be misused.

On the other Hand, Jesus was famous. His first followers became famous, too. Before Christ, God lifted up many stars.

Therefore, I believe modern-day Christians should plan to be relatively famous. Your fan group may be your neighbors and guests... or a local theatre audience.

Maybe they're in your high school or business... or they're worldwide through social media.

Just make sure to reach beyond your church walls. Because outsiders need to meet Jesus.

Therefore, you need to model Him... to them. So act Him out in your daily routines. Sing His praises in all your successes, and dance with delight every chance you get.

The backdrop is dark. The Light is in you. Be famous for God.

"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.
