YOU’RE SO DIFFERENT
(The Distinction Between The Christian And The Unbeliever)
TO THE BIBLE
2 Corinthians 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
When you read the scripture above, you’ll see the interesting analogy used by Apostle Paul to distinguish who Christians are from unbelievers. The Christian is called righteousness, while the non-Christian is called “unrighteousness.” To further make the difference clearer, the non-Christian is called darkness, while the Christian is called light. If you think that isn’t strong and differentiating enough, read the fifteenth verse; the non-Christian is called “Belial,” which represents the devil, while the church, of which you’re a part, is called Christ. Glory to God!
To understand this better, think of a farm where you’ve seen two animals—two cows for instance—pulling some ploughing instrument? They are connected by what’s called a yoke – in this example, you have an “equal” yoking. However, a situation where a cow and a horse are yoked is an “unequal” yoking. One will likely be dragged along and impede the progress of the other. This is what Paul tries to explain. As a Christian, someone who isn’t born again shouldn’t be your strongest ally or most dependable confidant; that’s a wrong association; an unequal yoking according to the Bible.
Aren’t you just glad you’re born again? Jesus has made you so different from the rest of the world. Now, you see with the eyes of God and think His thoughts. You’ve gone past the carnal level of life. You’re God’s young man or woman; the bearer of His righteousness, glory and grace. You’re of a different breed; the divine breed. You’ve been sanctified by God’s Spirit, separated to Him for His divine use; you’re holy and unblameable. This is why we preach the Gospel and pray for non-Christians around the world. It’s so they would be converted and translated into the same glorious life we have in Christ. Hallelujah!
2 Corinthians 6:17-18; 1 Peter 2:9-10
Thank you, dear Father, because I stand holy and without blame before you in love, according to the good pleasure of your will. You’ve made me the light of the world; therefore, I shine ever so brightly. Not only is the world drawn to the radiance of your righteousness in me, but they’re also turned from darkness to light, and to the liberty of the sons of God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
