True Christians Separate From The World
"Come out from among them and be separate,
says the Lord" 2 Corinthians 6:17
Separation from the world is a very important duty. Everyone who professes to be a Christian should consider it very seriously, for separation from the world has always been one of the evidences of God's work of grace in the heart. Those who have really been born of God's Spirit have always separated from the world, whereas those who are Christians only in name - always refuse to "come out and be separate".
This subject is especially important today, because many are trying to make Christianity as easy as possible and to avoid the need for self denial.
Many think they may behave just as they like and still be good Christians. I want to warn you plainly against this way of thinking.
JC Ryle, from the book "Walking With God"
How do we separate ourselves from the world? Do we just pull away from the sins of this evil world or do we actually go somewhere? Are Christians gathering some place, off to themselves?
If so I'm ready to walk away, leave the world and everything I have, pick up my cross and deny myself... where do we gather at?

Separation from the world is more spiritual than physical, though there are times it must be physical too.
Putting Jesus first has to result in that. Where do we go? Try to find other like minded Christians. Not an easy thing for sure but let God lead and it will happen in his timing.
