\After you have experienced genuine salvation, the first step you will need to take immediately is separation, you must separate yourself from every connection to old sinful life, from things that will not help or support your new life in Jesus Christ such as worldly music, movies, magazine – you will delete or destroy them; you will immediately stop going to places that will not help you spiritually includes worldly churches. You must detach yourself from people that will not help your spiritual life, friendship or relationship. You must destroy every sinful, worldly or cultic material in your possession including all the worldly dresses, clothing, jewelries – you don’t keep them or give to people, but you get rid of them completely and immediately.
After you experience salvation, failure to separate yourself from old sinful and worldly things and people will lead you to fall back into sins. Instead of you to move forward with Christ in new life, those things or people will pull you back into darkness and your old vomit. That is what Apostle Peter says in 2 Peter 2:22, “But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”
Every Christian journey that will successfully lead to heaven must daily involve separation as a continuous exercise. Separation from worldly, sinful things and people is not only for new convert, it is not only useful for us at our early Christian level but continuously till we get to heaven because when you separate yourself from this sinful or worldly thing today, the devil will introduce another thing tomorrow. That is the reason the Bible warns us to daily search ourselves so as to continue the spiritual exercise of separation. Unfortunately many long-time Christians and Christian ministers are majestically marching straight into eternity without realizing that the devil has implanted some ungodliness, uncleanness or worldliness into their lives, because they fail to exercise daily spiritual checking for separation.
