COMPANY

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

…Bad company ruins good morals.

1 Corinthians 15:33 (Revised Standard Version)

Experience in the ministry has taught me to take note of any Christian who keeps bad company. It is a very bad symptom, with a very poor prognosis. Bad company will eventually lead you to bad places. When you see a Christian who has bad friends, it is likely he will find his way out of church one day.

There is a saying, “Birds of the same feather flock together.” One Ghanaian proverb can be rendered: “Show me your friend, and I will show you your character.” This means that we can tell the kind of person you are by just looking at the kind of friends you have.

Within every large church there are smaller groups of Christians. When you observe these groups, you will discover that they are people with the same kind of “feather”.

The friends you move with will either lead you to church or to bad places. If you are a real believer and you want to remain in Christ, then you need to have good friends. They should be real born-again Christians, who attend a “born-again” church. They must believe the things you believe.

You must go to church together. Your friends must not have anything against your going to church. If they do, they must not be your friends!
