Scripture of the Day - June 27, 2012

Exodus 8:28  And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away:

Satan is like Pharaoh. He doesn't mind Christians going to church. He doesn't mind them doing good deeds. He just doesn't want them to stray too far from this world. He wants them within easy reach. He doesn't want them to be overly zealous for God, rather lukewarm and easily swayed by popular opinion. Death to sin and burial with Christ is ridiculed. Separation from this world has eyes rolling and accusations of cult. Holiness is scorned and we are enticed to blend in with this world. Be a little different but don't separate yourself, I want you close says the enemy of your soul. 
But the further you are from a poisonous snake the better. It's not wise to be within striking distance of a viper. It's foolhardy to scamper around the rocks where the rattlesnakes lay hidden and waiting to strike. Come out from among them and be ye separate says the Lord. 2 Cor 6:17
