Separation Unto The Lord

TEXT: “And I heard another voice from heaven saying “come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.”” Revelation 18:4 (NKJV)

Friends, it is essential that we begin to separate ourselves from every source that will hinder our receipt, and enjoyment, of all of which God has for us. And today’s reading reminds us of God’s desire for us to devote ourselves to, and for, Him – God is calling us out of the world so as to show the world the way.

As our month of consecration is winding out, I pray that we understand that if we are not separated for God’s purpose, then we will soon carry out the devil’s purpose, knowingly or not. You see the Greek word “hagiazo” means separated for a purpose. Remember Abraham? He could not receive God’s entire blessing, i.e. God’s purpose for blessing him, as long as Lot was still with him.

A rich and fulfilling life can only exist if we do not allow ourselves to be carried away by the thinking pattern of the world. We need to be seen as different to the world, not one of the pack.
That is the mark of the beast on the head and in the hand.

Be separated friends, this is what God asks of us.

LEARN and APPLY: The righteous must be separated from the unrighteous in their ways and speech.

Pray: Lord, help me to be distinct for you in my walk and work in the world, in Jesus’ name. Amen
