The Separation Between The Elect of God and the World

If God would save a man, He must fetch him out from the world—no man can remain part and parcel of an ungodly world and yet be God’s elect one, for this is the Lord’s own words to the enemy at the gates of Eden—“I will put enmity between you and the woman, between your seed and her seed.” Did He not also to Pharaoh, “I will put a division between My people and your people?” The Lord will sooner burn all Sodom down than Lot shall continue to be associated with its crimes and dragged down by its evil spirit. And so it came to pass that Lot was forced out—he was placed in such a strait that he must either run for his life or perish in the general burning. 

~ C.H. Spurgeon excerpt from "Remember Lot's Wife"
