Who Are You Fellowshipping With?

     "If you walk in the light, as He is in the Light, you have fellowship one with another." This kind of fellowship is the only real, true and genuine fellowship there is between believers. If we try to relate by any other means than through Christ and walking in His light (or living parallel to His will) than we won't really have fellowship, and it can't last that way. Why? The reason is this: What does light have to do with darkness? And Christ with Belial? (of the devil) In other words, if we are saying we are believers, but not doing the will of God, we are walking in darkness. "Only those who do my will, says God, are my disciples." And again, He reiterates that if we love Him, we will keep His commandments, or follow His will. This means we are letting Him be our Lord more and more as we open ourselves up to the dealings of the cross on the inside of us, allowing Him to conform us into His image.
     That is why He tells us to "come out from among them." A little yeast leavens the whole batch. The infection of the darkness can begin to influence the ones walking in the light. Again, He tells us in Corinthians that we are not to even eat with someone who calls himself a brother and is in sexual immorality. That is how strong the darkness can be when we attempt to mix it with the Light of Christ within us.
     He is preparing for Himself a Bride without wrinkle, spot or blemish, so He sets us apart by calling us out of the world, sin and the darkness. Lord, give us the strength to help us make this a reality in our lives so that we won't work against Your purposes. Amen.
