TOPIC:  Stop That Fellowship

TEXT: Ephesians 5:11-12(NKJV)

The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary defines fellowship as an organised group of people who share an interest, aim or belief. In the two verses in our text, Apostle Paul was emphatic in telling the Ephesian Church not to fellowship with unfruitful works of darkness. This was not the first time he would be addressing people on this matter. He also mentioned it to the Church at Corinth in his second letter that they should not be unequally yoked with unbelievers and their works (2Cor. 6:14-18).

Beloved, every Child of God is known by what he or she does or associates with (Matt. 7:17). Amos 3:3 says “Can two walk together unless they are agreed?” How will you say you are a child of God and you still keep company with cultists, rapists, bandits, fornicators, idolaters, backbiters, and the likes? Your life is not supposed to glorify the devil; it should but be a source of praise to the Shepherd of your soul. You have no reason to associate with the wrong people.

No situation should be considered strong enough to drive you into fellowship with Satan through wrong relationship. Sinners are bound to entice you but you should not consent. Keeping bad company will make you forfeit the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. Allow Jesus Christ rule your life entirely even in your choice of friends. God bless you.

PRAYER: Lord, help me not to associate myself with any work of darkness in Jesus’ name. Amen
