2 Corinthians 6:17-18 (NKJV) Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.”

As Christians we are to be set apart for the LORD. We are to be cleansed by the Word of God. We are not to be in agreement with idolatry and worldly things. For God asks us to separate ourselves from worldliness and from unclean things. Our problem these days is that we consider ourselves to be set apart for the LORD. Yet we gossip and say the meanest things, and we never think twice about it. Or we dress in the latest fashion that is simply too revealing, and we never even blush. Oh, how easy it is to talk about the things of God and to claim the Lord Jesus Christ is our Savior, and to say that we love Him. But then we still indulge in worldly and unclean things. My friends, don’t say you are a Christian unless you mean it. God says, “Come out from among them And be separate” and “do not touch what is unclean.” Then, God promises you this, “And I will receive you” and “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters.” My friends, if you truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, then God will always be your Father. God wants to treat you as a son or daughter, but if you are going off into worldliness and idolatry, then you have broken that intimate Father son or daughter relationship which God paid so dearly for with the blood of His Son. Say what you mean, my friend, and do what you say. Be an authentic Christian.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
