2 Corinthians 6:14 (KJV) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
When it became clear to Biodun that he was unstable spiritually because his friends were unbelievers, he decided he was going to leave them. This was a very difficult thing for him to do because he and his friends were very close. But Biodun knew he would never grow spiritually if he continued with his old friends.
He decided that his identity in Christ was now going to determine the flow of all his conversations and relationships. This was also hard to do, but he remembered that he was a new creature and old things have passed away (2 Cor 5:17). He remembered that he now had a new citizenship in heaven and was to be defined by this citizenship (Phil 3:20). He also remembered that nothing was too big to forsake for the sake of Christ and the Kingdom.
As his conversation changed and it became clear to his friends that the old Biodun was now dead, many of them were the ones who left. They were not interested in being friends with this new Biodun.
Many believers find it hard to leave their old friends and old life because they do not realize that what they have in Christ is far better. And in order to experience the new life, the old life has to die. For except a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains alone. But when it dies, germinates and grows, it becomes much better than a lowly dying grain.
Go into today remembering that in order for you to experience the new great life in Christ, the old life of sin has to die.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to remove everything hindering your light from shinning.
