Text:: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?”- 2 Corinthians 6: 14.

Comment: In the text for today, St Paul admonished true Christians not to team up with or join unbelievers in their activities and way of life because there is no fellowship (spiritual association) between righteousness and unrighteousness, and there is no communion (relationship) between light (truth) and darkness (falsehood).

Though many people in the world love darkness (i.e engaging in ungodly practices), worshippers of God are expected to be of exemplary conduct, standing up for truth and righteousness wherever they find themselves. A striking example is that of the three Faithful Jews (Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego), whose blunt refusal to fall down and worship the golden image led to miraculous sights which made King Nebuchadnezzar to make a decree that no other god should be worshipped except the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. – Daniel 3:1-30.

Having known the truth, we, as true Christians, are not expected to have spiritual association with unbelievers who are still wallowing in ignorance about the purpose of God; rather, we are expected to disassociate ourselves by keeping to the truth (the light) which, by the grace of God, has the power to turn unbelievers to God. Scripture says, “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.” - Philippians 2:15. See also Matthew 5:16.
