Name Tags: You Are... (Part 89)
I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven...
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
'Why do stars shine? Because they have huge fusion reactors in their cores releasing a tremendous amount of energy' (Universe Today).*
So if you believe and follow Jesus, if His Holy Spirit lives within you... you have the most powerful Reactor in the universe Who's FUSING with you. Because fusion joins two things together to form a single entity. Voila!
With Jesus in you, you glow like a star.
Actors, models and talent for Christ, as the Word of God clearly predicts... darkness now covers most of the earth: oppressive darkness from slavery; threatening darkness from battlefields; spiritual darkness from despair; corrupting darkness from temptations; confusing darkness from media; innocent darkness from ignorance; blinding darkness from idolatry... and lights-off darkness in theaters.
