Do Not Become Dissimilarly Yoked with Unbelievers[2 Cor 6:1-7:7]

Do Not Become Dissimilarly Yoked with Unbelievers

Let's Pray:

O Lord, forgive us. We are still quite contaminated. We need Your cleansing. Forgive us and cleanse us that we might be kept in the fellowship with You.

Hymn:608
Today's Verses: 2 Cor 6:1-7:7
Key Verse:

2 Cor 6:14

Do not become dissimilarly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership do righteousness and lawlessness have? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness?

Footnotes:
In 2 Cor. 6:14, Dissimilarly means diversely, implying a difference in (kind). This refers to Deut. 22:10, which forbids the (yoking) together of two dissimilar animals. Believers and unbelievers are diverse peoples. Because of their divine nature and holy (standing), the believers should not be yoked together with the unbelievers. This should be applied to all intimate relationships between believers and unbelievers, not only to (marriage) and business.Hence, the apostle exhorted them not to be (dissimilarly) yoked with unbelievers but to be (separated) that they might be fully reconciled, brought back, to God. (See 2 Cor 6:14 note 2)
