and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
(14) Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what fellowship do righteousness and lawlessness have? Or what sharing does light have with darkness? (15) Further, what harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what portion does a faithful person have with an unbeliever? (16) And what agreement does God's temple have with idols? For we are a temple of a living God; just as God said: "I shall reside among them and walk among [them], and I shall be their God, and they will be my people." (17) "`Therefore get out from among them, and separate yourselves,' says Jehovah, `and quit touching the unclean thing'"; "`and I will take YOU in.'" (18) "`And I shall be a father to YOU, and YOU will be sons and daughters to me,' says Jehovah the Almighty."
Do not loiter at YOUR business. Be aglow with the spirit. Slave for Jehovah.
for YOU know that it is from Jehovah YOU will receive the due reward of the inheritance. SLAVE for the Master, Christ.
