Partial surrender is no surrender at all. We would not let anyone surrender who still held a few weapons. It’s the same with obedience. Partial obedience is not obedience. God desires our full obedience. The Israelites learned the hard way. Something worth remembering.
“‘But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land, those you allow to remain will become barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides. They will give you trouble in the land where you will live. 56 And then I will do to you what I plan to do to them.’”
