It is considered a blessing when we do not have close companionship with those who oppose God. It does not mean we distance ourselves from sinners and unbelievers completely, no. We still have to pray for them and preach to them. As a Christian, you have been called to live a higher life – a life of holiness and righteousness. If you continue to walk in a path that is filled with wicked things, you will suffer painful consequences – one of these consequences can even be death.
And we pray:
Dear God, I put my trust in You and You alone. Father, may I never stray from the path You have set before me. May my life be an expression of your love, your holiness, and your righteousness. Lord, I pray for any of my friends, family, and colleagues who have not known You yet. Father, may You help me minister to them effectively so that they receive salvation. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
