As believers in Christ we are to bring forth His light to the world. In our walk with the Lord we don’t boast in our righteousness but in His holiness. For we are born again into newness of life. Our heart is given to God, and not men, as we strive do His will. We know that we are not perfect but reach for Christ when we fall. As Paul taught, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers”, our walk is different. The things of this world will only attempt to tear us down if we put ourselves out there. Paul continued to teach, “what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God.” If we continue to hang out with the wrong crowd and not give up what is holding us back then the Spirit will not dwell with us. If you believe in Christ than “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” God is waiting for us to give Him our whole heart. To everyone that desires to walk in holiness God promises, “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.”
It is my heart’s desire to do God’s will. I know that there are many things in this world that can take me away from His presence. For this reason I seek the Lord’s love daily that I may have better control over my flesh. His love is fulfilling where the things of the flesh only feel good in the moment. I always feel terrible when I’ve fallen in sin. There is darkness in all addiction. When we walk with Christ we carry His light. His light cast aside all darkness. It is my prayer that God can use me to bring forth His light to the lost. It is an amazing experience to have God’s love in my life. He has truly helped me understand the worth of being His disciple. I know that if only all people could taste of the fruits of the gospel of Jesus Christ more souls would be saved. Oh Lord, You are a beacon of hope in my life. I have never been so happy since I’ve given up things that are unholy in my life. You’ve given me a heart to better discern what is right and wrong. Thank You for the Word of God for it is a lamp to my feet. Thank You for Your counsel, for it wise. May the way I live my life give You praise. I love You.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (NKJV)
14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?
16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”
17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”
18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.”
