'DON’T JOIN THEM'

"Wherefore come out from among them, and be you separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" - 2 Corinthians 6:17
.
It is commonly said that if you cannot beat them, join them. But this analogy isn't true for a true child of God. Though we are in the world, we must not join the world in their pursuit, deed and lifestyle. 
.
When the prodigal son left his father, he went and joined himself to a citizen of the far country. He became like them and was feeding swine (Luke 15:15). 
.
There's no pleasure or gain in whatever a man does when he joins himself with the people of the world. Regardless of how great or successful he might be, it will all amount to colossal loss in eternity (Matt. 16:26). 
.
Brothers and sisters, examine your life in the light of this truth. Haven't you join the people of the world when it comes to dressing, their pursuit and the things they serve?
.
Examine that present relationship you're in, haven't you joined the practice of the world by indulging in sexual immoralities? 
.
You that have formerly condemn worldly things but now you're finding pleasure in them. Repent. God is calling you to separate yourself from the world and all that is in it. 
.
All that are in the world are unclean, no matter how beautiful or glorious it would seem. God will only receive you when you separate yourself totally from the world and do not touch unclean things. 
.
All that the world would offer you cannot lead you to eternal life but eternal damnation. What shall it profit you if you join them, gained the world and loose your soul in eternity? 
.
It is not too late if you repent and retrace your steps back to God. He will gladly receive you. Don't join them but stand alone with Christ!
