God's Warning About Relationships

Description

We can expect to differ from unbelievers on certain values, but we're still called to be a light in their lives.

Ephesians 5:1-10

You and I should be intentional about how we relate to non-Christians. With different beliefs and values, they may lead us astray whether they mean to or not. 

Paul wrote about this dilemma. He asked the Corinthians to consider what the following have in common: righteousness and wickedness; light and darkness; Christ and Satan (2 Corinthians 6:14-15). The answer is: Nothing. His point is that believers and unbelievers value different things, and this can be tricky to navigate, especially when it comes to…

Marriage. 1 Corinthians 7:13 instructs that the believer is to remain married and be a sweet fragrance of Christ in the home.

Business. There’s no guarantee a partnership between a Christian and non-Christian will go sour. But with different priorities and perspectives, disagreements can be anticipated. Regardless, the believer should be Christlike in everything.

Organizations. Be skeptical if an association opposes Christ’s name or if a church fails to see the need for a personal relationship with Jesus.

God designed relationships for our support and encouragement, so it’s critical for the people we associate with most closely to value Him above all else.
