When the Israelites left Egypt for the Promised Land, God told them to cross the Jordan River and destroy every evil thing in thier new homeland.  That meant killing all the heathen people and crushing their gods to powder.  God warned them that if they failed to do this, their culture would “mix” with the pagans and they would adopt depraved practices.

But the Israelites weren’t careful to destroy everything.  They found it easier to ease up and stop short.  In time, the idols and unrighteous people who were left undestroyed became a snare.  The Israelites became adulterous in their relationship to God and repeatedly turned their backs on Him.

When we entered the Promised Land of our own salvation, we were told to eliminate every hint of sexual immorality in our lives.  Since entering that land, have you failed to crush sexual sin?  Every hint of it?  If not, you’ll someday loathe yourself for that failure.
