|Memorise: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” (2 Cor 6:17)Read: 2 Corinthians 6:14-18|
|It is great to partner with the Most High God. However, there are certain conditions you must satisfy if you truly want to be God’s partner. First, to partner with God, you must not partner with unbelievers in business, marriage or in any other area. Why? You are made righteous by the blood of the lamb but they are not. You are light but they are darkness and both cannot combine: one must displace the other.When you are looking up to God for help, they will be looking down for help from satanic forces. When you are praying for Jesus to guide and direct your meetings, they will be making enchantments. While you are pulling to the right hand, they will be going the reverse direction.
You belong to Christ but they belong to Belial and each must serve his master.You are God’s temple while they are for idols. They are full of boasting. Whenever you find two idols talking, you will find one trying to impress the other that he is greater.The second divine partnership requirement is that you must come out from among unbelievers. Proverbs 21:16 says it is a backslider that abides in the midst of the dead. John 3:18 says unbelievers are already condemned. It is not until the final judgement day before they will be damned: they are already damned! It is only when they receive Jesus that that condemnation is lifted (Romans 8:1). Luke 24:5 asks why you should seek the living among the dead.
I cannot see how a true child of God will be comfortably seated at a party organized by an unbeliever. Ecclesiastes 9:3-4 says there is hope for the one who is joined to the living. Matthew 22:32 says God is the God of the living. The best friends of some Christians are unbelievers. This is unfortunate. If you are always in the company of unbelievers or you prefer their company to being with fellow believers, something is wrong somewhere. If Matthew 8:21-22 is anything to go by, ensure your parents are born again before their death and burial. Why must you be separated from the unbelievers?
Although Matthew 5:45 talks of general blessings, certain rains – showers of blessings will only come on believers. Amos 4:7 talks of God’s ability to release rain on one part of the city and leave out the other. Be wise, do not let your partnership with unbelievers rob you of your blessings.
|Watch the company you keep. Ask God to carefully select your friends for you.
