Intimacy with God

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousnesswith lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 What accord has Christwith Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? 16 What agreementhas the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,

“I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,

and I will be their God,

and they shall be my people.

17  Therefore go out from their midst,

and be separate from them, says the Lord,

and touch no unclean thing;

then I will welcome you,

18  and I will be a father to you,

and you shall be sons and daughters to me,

says the Lord Almighty.”

Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everydefilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.
