SANCIFICATION 4

🔊 Audio Version with Audio Bible Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1196

2 Corinthians 7:1 (KJV)
Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.


Deola observed that every time she spent quality time with her friends, she would drain her spiritual strength and faith, and this manifested in loss of appetite for prayer and the word, loss of spiritual strength to resist temptations, etc. Even though her friends were unbelievers, they never discussed anything unholy and immoral. Deola did not know that merely fellowshipping with unbelievers was affecting her spirit negatively, regardless of what they discussed.

Fellowshipping with unbelievers does not happen by merely interacting with them, it happens when you share the deep contents and intents of your heart, it is engendered by a feeling of togetherness and oneness with them (being unequally yoked).

If you read the verses before today’s Bible text, you will see that the discussion was about Christians separating themselves from the world because we are the temple of God -God lives in us. Unbelievers are temples of idols because God does not live in them but idols.

What defiles the spirit is from within; things like hatred, pride, malice, etc. What defiles the flesh is usually from outside. It is a result of ‘touching an unclean thing’ (see 2 Cor 6:17). Defilement of flesh leads to defilement of spirit (the windows to your spirit are in your flesh). A defiled spirit will lack the boldness to fellowship with God and receive grace for life and godliness.

We see from scripture that interacting with pagan temples has the ability to defile [the flesh] because such temples are unclean (see Acts 15:20). Fellowship with unbelievers defiles the flesh because unbelievers are also such temples.

Go into today asking the Lord to keep you from all defilement and help you to be holy.
