Christian, Be Separate :

Let our separation from the world be our closer union and fellowship with the Church of Christ in its every branch, and with Christ Himself, the one Head of the Church. This will tend more strongly to define and sharpen the line of demarcation between us and an ungodly world. Association with the saints will render us a more marked and distinct people. The world will take account of us that we are the Lord’s. O my soul! come away from an unclean and defiling world. “If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” Lord! by Your cross may I be crucified to the world, and the world to me!

"Association with the saints will render us a more marked and distinct people." - A strategy I am seeking to pursue!!

- Although I can hear the "Judge not.." brigade bleating "Ah, but Jesus mixed with tax collectors & sinners." (Different subject.)
