Now that you’ve heard about God’s standards of sexual purity, are you willing to make a covenant to hold to that standard with all your heart and soul? Will you tear down every sexual thing that stands in opposition to God?
Can you see that you’ve been living the mixed standards of mere excellence? Stopping short but still looking Christian enough? Or have you aimed for obedience and perfection, where you’re truly called to go? How will you know? By the costs you’re willing to pay. What’s your Christian life costing you?
Because your heart was responsive and you
humbled yourself before God when you heard
what he spoke against this place and its people,
and because you humbled yourself before me
and tore your robes and wept in my presence,
I have heard you, declares the LORD.
(2 CHRONICLES 34:27)
