How are we defiling ourselves? (Jeremiah 7:23)
  • Are you twisting God’s commands?
  • Are you repenting?
  • Are you holding fast to deceit?
  • Do you know the ordinances of the Lord?
  • Have you rejected God?
  • What kind of wisdom are you walking in, man or God’s?

A true believer longs to know God, follows God, and pursues holiness. True salvation always produces an abiding change of nature.

What do you pursue? You seek what you love!

Is your nature changing you to reflect God, or are just your words proclaiming God?
