Today’s reading Ezra 3-6

Ezra 6:21 And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek the LORD God of Israel, did eat,

They separated themselves from the filthiness of the heathen to seek the Lord. We have been born again. We should separate ourselves from self worship, seek glorying, self seeking, etc to die to ourselves and to live to and for God.

Separation is not from but from and to!

What have you seen as unpleasing to God in your life and separated from, be it thoughts, actions, emotions, etc? How have you given yourself more to the Lord to love and seek Him?
