When you got saved, Christ called you out of darkness and into light, I Pet 2:9.  Compare Jn 1:4-5, Jn 8:12, Ps 119:105, 130.  The people who don’t get saved stay in darkness, Jn 3:19.  So once you get saved and you are in the light, there are certain things you must do and certain things you must not do:

You must not go along with them (v. 7)

  1. World always trying to attract you away from God and steal your affection for the Lord
