Hello, God has given me something in Judges 2:3 which says, “Now therefore I tell you that I will not drive them out before you; they will be thorns in your sides and their gods will be a snare to you.”
So the they that the Bible is talking about is the Canaanites, and because the Israelites did not drive them out, they are going to have to deal with them, the Bible says that their gods will be a snare to them, and the Canaanites will be thorns in there sides, now you should remember that Jesus (when He died on the cross) had a crown of thorns on His head, so Jesus took a crown of thorns on His head, and took the thorns of sin out of our sides. That is so wonderful, that Jesus would (did) take not only thorns on His head, but He was crucified, mocked, and beaten. That would be too much for any normal human, but that makes the price even more because, He was perfect and holy, so to take on all the sin of the world, was a lot, it would be a lot for any one, but for Jesus, Jesus was holy, so Jesus was so humble to that for us.
Have you driven sin out?
