Come Out

Key Verse

 “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 Corinthians 6:17).

Text — 2 Corinthians 6:14-18


Consider an ox and a donkey yoked together to pull a plough; the ox represents the believer (virtuous and strong), the donkey represents the unbeliever (obstinate and untrustworthy), and the yoke that binds them together indicates the alliance or relationship that Paul cautions against. The yoke that connects the ox and donkey prevents them from moving in separate directions, despite their best efforts. This demonstrates the pressure and conflict that may develop when believers and unbelievers form tight relationships/collaborations. Paul advises against yoking of Christians and unbelievers because their basic differences make peaceful coexistence impossible.

The phrase “come out” encourages purity and detachment from the world. We are called as Christians to be God’s temple and to have no relationship with evil or idolatry. Be distinct and unique while communicating God’s love and truth to unbelievers. Live a virtuous and pure life, separate yourself from worldly ideals, attitudes, and conduct; and endeavour to live a life that pleases God. Then can you truly reflect Christ in the world while also experiencing God’s presence and favour.


Reflect Christ in the world


 It is impossible for holiness and evil to coexist.

Prayer for today
