“Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty”
2 Corinthians 6:17-18
Separation from the world is an issue of the heart; it is in itself the revelation of our salvation. We are not sanctified by our confession, we are sanctified by the living truth of Christ working within to sanctify us without.
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth”
It is in the Word becoming the truth in us, whereby we know what sanctification is. Obedience is the only path to sanctification.
“Do not have Jesus Christ on your lips, and the world in your heart”
