Separate and Serve God
Psalm 34:14 (KJB) Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
This is a short and simple verse with few words but a complex message.
God clearly asks every regenerate man to DEPART from evil.
God says do not keep company with evil people. Run far from the darkness of this world and find eternal safety the goodness and grace of God. Not only must a godly man align with God, but choose to do His will and do good while he sojourns in this world.
Lastly, pursue peace. It is not enough for a godly man to speak good, and act good to God and others, but a godly man must pursue peace with all mankind.
You can be salt and light to others and be peaceful in all your dealings with others as you align yourself with the righteousness and holiness of God. A godly man lives in contrast to the dark division and desperation found at work with the god of this world.
