“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 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). I often hear folks say that the Lord doesn’t care about separation from the world and that those who speak about doing so are legalists. According to our devotional verse, we are to come to God on His terms – terms that include separation. While sorting the laundry this morning, I was reminded of the importance of separation. If the laundry is not sorted properly, the white clothes are definitely affected by the colored clothes. I have firsthand knowledge of this fact when my favorite blouse or my husband’s white shirt was ruined because I failed to separate them before washing.
Prayer: Lord, I want to come to You on Your terms. I desire to be received by You. I don’t want my life to be tainted by unclean things. Your terms are the only way to go.
