Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1)
Today’s Morsel: Holiness is about separation. Many have trouble reaching this point because they do not want to crossover or come out from their old way of life. Many fail to realize that when God called them, He was calling them to lead. He was not calling them to be a follower of wrong, but to lead others to a state of righteousness. If those who are being called by God would realize their purpose, they could see the value of God’s power working in their lives. When we separate ourselves unto God for His purpose, we move unto holiness and perfection. Perfection is holiness and holiness is perfection. Completeness in Him will help us to become perfect. Separation unto Him will cause us to be content and become holy. Yet it all begins with us knowing that He has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light and one separating themselves for His purpose. The only way Abraham could receive the promise was that He had to separate himself unto God.
Sing: Jesus use me, O’ Lord don’t refuse me, for surely there’s a work that I can do, and even though it’s humble Lord help my will to crumble, though the cost be great I’ll work for You.
Thought For Today: Promises are only given to those who are obedient and separated unto God.
