Text:: “And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?”- 2 Corinthians 6:15.
Comment: The text for today is a rhetorical question, stressing the fact that our Lord Jesus Christ can never ever have any connection with Belial (Satan the Devil). Likewise will a believer not compromise his faith with an unbeliever. Truly, there is no concord or common ground because two cannot “walk together, except they be agreed” - Amos 3:3.
Jesus Christ told his disciples, “No man can serve two masters…” (Matthew 6:24), while St Paul charged Christian believers thus, “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.” - 1 Corinthians 10:21.
Christ demonstrated that there is no concord between him and Satan the Devil when on an occasion he saw the Devil approaching, he told his disciples “…for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me…Arise, let us go hence”. (John 14:30, 31) As worshippers of God we should not associate with activities inspired by Satan the Devil, no matter how glamorous they may appear. We should recall that when the Devil showed our Saviour all the glories of the world and promised to give them to him, if only he would fall down and worship him, Christ said to him “…Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” - Matthew 4:10
