Paul loved the Christians in the city of Corinth. He wrote two long letters to them. In his letters, Paul told these Christians the wrong things they were doing. He warned them that they needed to change. Paul also encouraged these Christians and reminded them how much God loved them.

In 2 Corinthians 6:14-15, Paul reminded these Christians to not be like people in the world. “You are not the same as those who don’t believe. So don’t join yourselves to them. Good and evil don’t belong together. Light and darkness cannot share the same room. How can there be any unity between Christ and the devil? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?”

In some churches today, the preacher preaches only what the people are willing to accept. The preacher does not challenge and convict people to repent and give up their life of sin. Paul warned the Christians in Philippi to not be like other people who do not love and follow God.

We should pay attention to Paul’s warning today. And we should also remember that God has promised eternal life and great blessings to people who stay close to Him.
