Separate

My first acquaintance with the verse came from the King James Translation and it read this way:

2 Corinthians 6:17 (KJV) 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.  source

Over the years I have read other translations; the message remains the same. When we have exchanged our sins for JESUS’s righteousness we don’t have to live like those who are still on the hook for payment.

So do we? How many ways of the unbeliever can we name that we have laid aside; that we longer practice?

So how separate are we? Is it enough that we can be readily identified as a believer by unbelievers? Yes?

Good! You are a light in this dark world! Keep shining!

2 Corinthians 6:17 Amplified Bible (AMP) 17 “So come out from among unbelievers and be separate,” says the Lord, And do not touch what is unclean; And I will graciously receive you and welcome you [with favor], source
