UNEQUAL YOKE 01 📜
///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 305| October 31, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be my people."
2 Cor 6:14-16
From the way many Christians think, talk and behave, it is obvious they don’t know the difference between the Christian and the unbeliever. The difference between the Christians and the unbeliever is not that the Christian goes to church and the unbeliever doesn’t, it is more than that. It is true that Christians go to church but that is not a significant difference between the child of God and the unbeliever.
The world doesn’t know who a Christian is according to 1 John 3:1 but unfortunately many Christians don’t know who they are either. The basic Christian problem today is neither the devil nor sin it is knowledge. The aspect of lacking knowledge that is really affecting Christians negatively is their knowledge of who they are in Christ. When you think, talk and behave like unbelievers you are yoked with them, and this is an unequal yoke. When animals are yoked, usually they are drafted in a wooden frame to do a particular work. In yoking animals, they must be of a similar size, strength and should be of made of the same kind of animal. When they are of varying sizes it is called an unequal yoke.
The Christian is righteous, unbelievers are not. Christians are God’s children unbelievers are children of the devil (John 8:44). The Christian is a new creation with new abilities and a member of the family of God. When the Christian approaches the things of this life in the way unbelievers do, He is unequally yoked with them.
Refuse to live an ordinary life as a child of God. You were born anew to be a wonder to this world. The fact that you are not living it doesn’t mean you are ordinary it only means you are unequally yoked with unbelievers in many ways. Transform your life by feeding your thoughts with the Word of God. Make the word of God the standard for your life and begin to soar in life.
