Go Out From Their Midst (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1)

Phillip Stuckey, February 11, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The church at Corinth was surrounded by an ungodly and immoral culture (1 Cor. 6:9-11). But the gospel of Christ changed all that. Yet, there were many who continued to struggle with the influence of the culture (2 Cor. 12:20-21). They seemed to have thought they could keep one foot in the world and one in the church. Paul called on them to stop sinning and resist their culture and we need to heed his words today.

2 Corinthians 6:14–7:1 (Listen)

14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,

  “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,
    and I will be their God,
    and they shall be my people.
17   Therefore go out from their midst,
    and be separate from them, says the Lord,
  and touch no unclean thing;
    then I will welcome you,
18   and I will be a father to you,
    and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
  says the Lord Almighty.”

7:1 Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.

(ESV)
