Come and be separate

In 2 Cor 6:17, Paul’s message over the centuries has been, come out from among from among them and be separate.  This has nothing to do with communal living.  There once was a group of Christians that read this verse and so they had nothing to do with the world.  There never won a soul to Christ and became what Gordon Franklin calls a "Happy holy huddle."  God does not want us to drop  out of the world,  He wants us to live in the world but not be a part of it.  Luke 6, tells us to occupy until He comes.  We can live in this world and yet not be polluted by it.  That comes by living and walking in the Spirit.  It is Paul’s desire that we do not let the world become an active part of our lives.  Rom 12:1-2, says we are not to conform to the world but transform it.  Separation does not mean isolation.  It means being part of the world’s affairs and people lives but not allowing them to rule you.  You rule and transform them through Christ.  Your promises today are:  Psalm 25:9, 37:24, 73:24, Prov 3:5-6, 11:3 John 16:13 and Rev 3:8.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  Success is never a barometer for character, it is what you do in your private times that is.  When the zeal of God is motivating someone.  I have one piece of advice, get out of their way or move with them.
