Practical Messages for Impractical Times

Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate,” says the Lord “Touch no unclean thing and I will receive you.” 2 Corinthians 6:17

After hearing a wonderful sermon-testimony on Sabbath, we sat down and enjoyed Christian fellowship and a delicious plant-based lunch. One of my friends expressed how good it felt to be among believers. We chatted about how different our lives are since we have whole-heartedly committed ourselves to God.

The Apostle Paul in his writings always emphasized the importance of social fellowship among believers. He understood the importance of worshipping and spending time with each other outside of the weekly church services. We are able to pray, and provide emotional support for one another, which incorporates godly principles and imparts strength.

It is no greater joy than to be able to share testimonies, and talk about God’s grace and mercy, and how our lives are so much better with God. However, as believers we must be well-rounded in our knowledge of life. Learning encompasses studying the Bible, praying, being outdoors in nature, taking vacations, pursuing education, developing hobbies, and helping those in need. We are to be aware of social injustices, political changes, local and world news, and the clean, fun activities that exist for our enjoyment. Whatever we participate in should acknowledge that God is first and foremost in our lives.

Our lives are purpose driven-not to focus on pleasure seeking activites-but, to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to be unified with each other.

Dear God, Help me to renounce the world and live a purpose driven life. Amen.
