And God Divided the Light from the DarknessÖ..
Separation is needed for manifestation. The beauty of Light is known in its separation, contamination of any form of Light with Darkness reduces the efficacy of that Light. After the introduction of Light into the Darkness that this world was formerly occupied with, God put a boundary to His Light. Light did not evolve from anything around; it was the initiation of God Himself. Do you notice that God divide the Light FROM the Darkness, inotherwords, the Light was formerly in the darkness and therefore God had to practically Call it out of the mess. Do you know that before you were saved you were in the Darkness of this world and it was out of it that you were called?
However, beyond receiving Salvation there is the Separation for proper shining. Remember in Matthew 5, Jesus called us the Light of World, therefore Just as God said to the Light in the beginning, He is also saying to us today; BE SEPARATE from the darkness from which you were called out from. You cannot be a Light and fellowship with darkness itís impossible, they cannot be equally yoked. In 2Tim2:22

22 ∂ FLEE ALSO YOUTHFUL LUSTS: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Timothy was a young Pastor being tutored by Paul, we can learn from this that we must; as young people, be divided (Separated) from lusts so as to pursue eternal things like Righteousness, Faith, Charity, Peace. You cannot be a true Christian heading for Heaven yet fellowshipping with iniquity.
In another place Peter the Apostle, says:

1Pe 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

To Abstain means to stay away, run away from anything that has to do with Lusts and carnal desires because they war against the soul. Can you imagine a thousand heavily armed soldiers sent to destroy you? Itís more severe than that in the Spirit, because the Devil is set to remain at war with you until he conquers your soul and bring you to hell. Yet God gives us a way out ABSTAIN, Separate yourself from these things.
You are not separated by confession but by proving it and this is shown by what you have renounced and said bye-bye to. Are you light? Are you truly separated? Can you truly name a number of things that you have separated from for the purpose of God? Are you truly divided from the darkness?

Central Truth: Steer clear from contamination, let your light so shine before men that your Father in heaven may be glorified.

FOCUS SCRIPTURE: Genesis 1:4
PRAYER:
Consecrate me NOW to thy Service Lord.
