Day-by-Day – Day 76 – Light vs. Darkness


~2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Where does your day-to-day life lie? Do you mainly fellowship with unbelievers? I have heard some say that this is where we must be to spread the Gospel. Well, yes, the Gospel needs to be preached but it does not mean that your life should be spent totally around unbelievers. Otherwise this verse would be in vain. Paul was explaining to us that if we are yoked with unbelievers, we find ourselves (those with the light of the Gospel) having fellowship with darkness (the unsaved).

It is safe to conclude that when a believer is surrounded by unbelievers, he will struggle in his spiritual walk and will fall over and over. Any believer can tell you this. It is best to surround yourself with people of like mind so you may be encouraged to do right. Spurgeon said it right in the quote below. The unbelieving world will not help draw out truth in our hearts. Instead, they will keep us in darkness. This is not the place for a believer to be.

“Our own hearts are deceitful, so that truth lies not on the surface, but must be drawn up from the deepest well.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
