We have a pretty fruit basket that sits on our
countertop. It is usually filled with fresh organic
fruit. Today, I went to grab a beautiful-looking
apple but when I lifted it up, I noticed that it
was very light in weight. I looked at the
backside and sure enough, it was rotten. It also
had corrupted the orange sitting right next to it.
Both pieces of fruit had to be thrown away.
Rotten fruit always corrupts the good fruit. A good piece of fruit never
rehabilitates a rotten bunch of fruit. It is always the other way around.
Place a good apple in a rotten bunch and it too shall become rotten.
2Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for
what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what
communion hath light with darkness?
We, as Christians, are commanded in Scripture to avoid the constant
fellowship with unbelievers. We are instead to fellowship with other
believers in Christ Jesus.
1Thess 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day:
we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Eph 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the
Lord: walk as children of light:
We are light in the darkness. We are the salt of the earth and are
supposed to be a good example. We are called to show the love of
and to love those who are considered unlovable. But the bible warns
us of constant fellowship with the unsaved. We are not called to
fellowship with them, lest our own minds become corrupted.
Only Jesus can set men free. Only Jesus can save the unconverted
soul. We are to witness, show our light and reach the lost by our love
and compassion but ultimately, it is Jesus who will save the soul.
It is not our job to rehabilitate the unsaved…only Jesus can change
them—once they get saved. Trying to change your unsaved friend is
like trying to patch the hole on the sinking Titanic. If you really want
your loved one to change, tell them about Jesus-- for He alone can
give someone a brand new heart.
Sitting on the phone with your troubled unsaved girlfriend all day long
will bring you down spiritually. We are to show the love of Jesus to
the unsaved but we are not to grieve the Holy Spirit within us by
listening to ungodly conversations.
Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of
darkness, but rather reprove them.
You will find that as you grow in Christ Jesus, either your unsaved
friend will desire Christ Jesus too by the Light they see in you or they
will abandon their friendship with you because they desire not the
Lord in their own lives. No matter what, we cannot compromise..
Jesus must come first in everything we do and say.
Col 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing,
being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of
