  • Sheba
    Truth is the armour of righteousness. Surround yourselves with believers. "Come out from among them and be ye separate". Unfriend, unholy and unrighteous people they do not live in truth. We cannot be deceived by the ungodly laws of this world with unclean and ungodly behaviors. God receives us as his daughters and sons when we live sanctified and holy. Sin is not acceptable to God.

    Verse 17 We must keep ourselves free from practices and customs that are not in line with the Bible. Jehovah God views these as unclean.
  • Hazel Carty
    For I love you Lord and I lift my voice to w worship you oh my soul rejoice,
  • Ray
    He is letting us know that faith produces works, he has an investment in us and is looking for a return. I n the business world it is known as roi. Return on investment.Jesus said my father works and higher to i work, Christ demonstrated faith by works.we are not alone he is with us. With him we can do great things.With out him we can do nothing

    The Scripture says that we are only to share the yoke with our own kind. In the Law it was forbidden to mix linen with woolen garments; and so also, not to plow your fields with a team of Ox and Ass together. Come apart and be ye separate means that we are not of the world even as Jesus is not of the world; and the true mark of conversion will be a heart and all its desires severed from the world.
  • Ken
    Consider unequally yoked and equally yoked. Certainly, we are not to be equally yoked (meaning the same as). Here it is saying that we should not even be unequally (not the same as or similar) yoked, but be separate, totally separate! Otherwise, the scripture would not have went on to say, "come out from among them", meaning to be away from or apart from. This is not just in the sense of marriage.
  • BSP
    Verse 4: In every way and aspect of life we want to show that we are ministers of God.
  • BSP
    Verse 13: We should widen out in our affections by getting to know and helping those of different races, ages, and nationalities. In this way we can imitate Jehovah God.
  • A disciple
    Hi Kurt; I like what you said regarding "our own whims, emotions, and personalities," and that "we must keep the discipline of God's intentions within us." The Word, "LET this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus;" like in the Proverbs, "LET thine heart retain MY WORDS;" our discipleship is toward moral excellence out of a good and honest heart, PROVING what is acceptable TO GOD in TRUTH.
  • Kurt
    How can we bring the Gospel to sinners without sinning? Take another Christian and have an entry and exit plan. Arm yourself with the Truth (Jesus), and the Spirit. Allow God to work his love towards sinners thru us, yet remain safely separate in the Armour, lest we may fall. We are subject to our own whims, emotions, and personalities, yet we must keep the discipline of God's intentions within us

    Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
  • BSP
    Verse 2 is quoting Isaiah 49:8. Now is the especially acceptable time. We don't want to miss the purpose of God's undeserved kindness.

    Jim: Yes, Unevenly Yoked in anything: But its mostly used for Marriage. Most believe They Will draw the other to Christ,But---? One Looks to The Light the other to Darkness. We can help the Lost. I will help anyone with almost anything,the Price: Hearing The Way of Salvation. I sometimes take them Fishing or invite for Supper. Sometimes One will go to Church.
  • Jim Kirkpatrick
    Being unequally yoked with unbelievers is correct, but it means not to run with them not to restrain from witnessing to them.
  • Wayne
    Ask God for a Christian young lady or young man to marry. God knows what you need and where they are. And ask the Holy Ghost to bring your hearts together in His love. I did and been married, to same Christian woman, 52 years. God Bless.

    My son,Bruce died Thanksgiving day 2012. He was 42 years old. He eat dinner went outside, fell over. Aneurysm. His Mom died five years earlier. Doing dishes,just fell over.Aneurysm. With his death my heart was crushed. Yet at the same time I can Rejoice! My second wife died Dec.11 2013. Lost. His will be done. He's the calm in the storm. The peace that passes all understanding. Yes we can Rejoice

    V.10 - As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; - I've had 2 recent experiences with this - as I know many of you have. About 2 1/2 mos. ago my 46 yr. old son had a heart attack, his heart stopped, they got it going again; he's fine now. Then this past Dec. 13 I came down with flu/pneumonia for 2 wks. Mighty prayer was sent up for us both of us by the ch. I'm fine, but thru it all I could REJOICE!!
  • Bruce
    Christina: the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband. 1Corinthians 7:10-16 Both will not go to heaven only those who are born again. Unevenly yoked will be hard. A believer should never marry an unbeliever! Have you been called John6:44,forgiving 1John1:9,you will be:Matthew3:11. You will know, impossible not to know 2Corinthians 5:17
  • Christina
    Being unequally yoked can defile the believer,as well as the believer never inherit God's Kingdom
  • Barbara
    This world is not our home so why get comfortable here. We do not belong here if we are Christians. It is like visiting. It is not our home and we dont belong so we dont make ourself too comfortable.
  • Lilian
    We need to invite the Holy Spirit in every moment of our lives. God is available all the time and His door is always open. We must obey his words and commandments. We must meditate his words day and night all things that we need will be added and we will be always prosper. Listening to his words are more powerful than prayers. Our prayers must be completed with thanksgiving and praising God for his love endures forever. His love and mercy is always with us. Thanks to Jesus for his precious blood that shed for us. Amen
  • Ernest
    it was the word of today for me and it warned me to be pure and change my life style to be come a better Christian, and stop doing the things God has delivered me from
  • Emerald for verse 17
    Separate yourself from anything you used to worship or do still worship other than Me. Draw close to me with your whole heart, let nothing worldly or dirty come between us, worship only Me and I will be everything you need.
  • Babatunde Fadairo for verse 2
    God want us to be very attentive to him and he want us to call him and find him at any acceptable time, the fact is that all times are acceptable in the site of the lord but we must make our self available.
  • Prophet Bob Blessings
    This verse 6 powerfully says that when you have change everything becomes new, so we ust not be yoked with things that are negative to God.
  • Tony Searight
    Paul truly is an example of suffering for Christ Sake......
  • Andrew Ojiezel,Lagos,Nigeria
    I see 2 Corinthians 6 as command to all Christians to be separated from every work of darkness.That once you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord, then you must not have fellowship with sins works of darkness .You must be distinguised from agent s of darkness.
  • Evangelist Chidinma
    Many don 't understand it when God says come out from among them.touch not the unclean,separate ourselves from them and l will receive you and you shall become my sons and daughters. We must separate from them as we can not be unequally yoked with the ones we condemn their actions and expect to become sons and daughters of God. God is holy and we must be holy to maintain relationship with him because sin separates us from God so we must be received by God as we coming out from among them.May the Lord give us wisdom to understand what separation means though in the world but not as the world your character and actions as a believer of the word of God will do the math.tThe way you live will convince God and the world that you separated from the worldly manner as you please God be bless.
  • Danny
    I agree with Carol. For the traditions religious of men are not the traditions of God. Almighty God says to keep my laws my judgments and my statutes and I will receive you.
  • Allan for verse 17
    It means to separate yourself from the world and embrasing the body of CHRIST Separation not isolation I used to be a smoker drinker and use to do drugs it would be foolish to socialize with people who have such bad habits The spiritual and the flesh will always be in oppotition The LORD called every believer out of bondage to serve HIM alone as he is a jealous GOD
