Showers of Blessing!

“…so we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth” Exodus 33:16.

This is exactly what God wanted His people, the Israelites to be when they had to travel through several regions where the people really did not know about the LORD who led Israel to Canaan. But the Israelites often disappointed the LORD by mingling with the people of the land and did just the opposite of what the LORD had commanded them.

Here is what the Lord wants from each one of us even during these days; He is coming for a bride “not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish” Ephesians 5:27.

Although we are in a world where believers and non believers live together there is a big line drawn between the believer and the non believer. You cannot be conformed to the styles of the non believer. He has given you wisdom and we ought to conduct ourselves in a wisely manner. Ephesians 5:15-17 says, “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”

2 Corinthians 6:17 says, “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.”

“Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?” James 4:4.

Dear reader, we have a great responsibility to pray for all the people in the world that they come to Jesus and accept Him as their own personal Saviour and Lord. We are the ones who should show them Jesus through our behavior and our life style. They should first see a marked difference in us so that they become attracted to Jesus Christ.

Be Blessed!
