2 Corinthians 6:14 (NET)
Do not become partners with those who do not believe, for what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship does light have with darkness?

Brain and Biodun were members of the same church, but Biodun knew that Brain was not a believer because he knew about the immoral lifestyle that Brain lived, and he knew that Brain did not love the Lord. Brain was born into a Christian family and knew how to sound and appear like a believer. That was why Biodun thought it was ok for him to partner with Brain. But the truth was that Brain was an unbeliever and Biodun knew this, but partnering with him made a lot of sense. Biodun partnered with Brain because he leaned on his own understanding.

When we talk about unbelievers, we are talking about those who do not believe in the Lord Jesus; Jesus is not yet their Lord and they are not under the authority of Christ. There are many people in Church today who are unbelievers, and one can be easily deceived by their outward appearance. But it is by their fruits that you will know them. You can discern a person’s fruit by his character, the things he says, and the way he responds to God’s word. If a person’s life cannot be controlled by the word of God, that person has not yet received Christ as his Lord.

Partnership and fellowship with unbelievers weaken the faith of a believer because unbelief is contagious and very spiritually toxic.

Go into today remembering that the proof that a person is a child of God is their fruit. Anyone can claim to be anything, but it is by their fruits that you will know them (Matth 7:16). Read 1 Cor 6:9-10

Ask the Lord to help you always discern people correctly.
