Interpretation: Paul instructs the Philippians to do all things without grumbling or questioning so that they may be blameless and innoncent, children of God without blemish, which will allow them to shine as lights in the crooked and twisted generation of this world. As they do so, they should also hold fast to the gospel so that Paul, when Christ returns, may be proud that his efforts were not put to waste. He finds gladness and joy in this, and wishes that the Philippians would also, even as he prepares to complete his life of sacrifice. Application: (i) An awareness of our light. Realization that as Christians we should strive to shine as lights in the world, being a good witness of our faith so that we don't bring shame to the gospel. This is all the more important given that we live in the midst of such darkness; it is our faith which distinguishes us from the rest of the world, not our own personal attributes or qualities. Our identity in Christ should be reflected in the manner in which we conduct ourselves. (ii) An awareness of the darkness around us. As we shine and see the darkness around us, it should give us a better understanding of the need for evangelism in order to bring people out of the darkness which they are living in. We should hold fast to the gospel, which contains words of life ; this gospel of salvation will give them life and bring them out of their darkness.
